Hate buttonholes? Try installing a zipper in the Infinite A-line dress instead!
Let’s face it: even veteran sewists find themselves with tasks they dread and buttonholes are often at the top of the list! I’m much happier now that I have a machine that does automatic buttonholes, but no machine is perfect and I still find myself crossing my fingers before making them. 🙂
When I made Kira’s Dia de los Muertos dress, I knew we needed to try inserting a zipper into the Infinite A-line bodice. If you’ve never added a zipper to a fully lined bodice, you’re in for a treat! The finished product is so nice and pretty that you’ll wanna give yourself a pat on the back…and brag to anyone who will listen!
It’s really not as difficult as it looks and takes WAY less time than hand sewing a whole bunch of buttons and swearing your way through buttonholes. Ready?!
