Not any more! First garment I've ever made using a zip! Fabric purchased from The Remnant Warehouse on Saturday 18 June; sewn up on Sunday 19 June and worn out that night! A new record from shop to sewn.
Wool fabric with border design; left over flower appliqued above design on right in photo. Fabric sewn into a tube, invisible zip inserted, and darts in front and back.
$14.95 for fabric (1m) plus .40c for zip.
