- My mission to find a zip foot was unsuccessful so I had to do it without. The zip looks ok but the bottom of the zip looks a bit dodgy.
- The instructions told me to put the zip on before the facing, which I did. The diagram showed the zip teeth at the top of the dress so I did that, then when I went to do the facing I realised that I would be turning it under and therefore had to turn the zip under as well! A valuable lesson to myself is to always keep the next stage in the back of my mind and think carefully about what I'm doing! I've managed to hand sew the top of the zip down so it looks fine from the outside but I'm a perfectionist and I know I've made a mistake, which annoys me!
Here are some pics, please forgive that it needs a bit of an iron. It's far from perfect but I'm slowly learning! The hem looks a bit dodgy, I think it's just the way it's hanging on the hanger because it looks fine when it's on.
