Yes, yes I did. The skull dress, which I made and messed up and killed the invisible zip..then added another only for it to look wrong.

Well this afternoon I actually HAND SEWED a zip into the dress. All I can say is that compared to wresting an invisible zip foot, or even a normal zip foot, it is a piece of piss. That is a technical term, by th way. Not perfect, of course not but a hundred times better. Yeah, it was time consuming, but I bet it still took less time than unpicking 2 14″ zips 😀

Top pic is side view showing the zip…then the actual dress, and bottom is a cheeky bit of lace trim I got from the market for 40p that I thought would look nice on the bottom of the skirt – it’s quite plain lace but the dress is loud enough! I may wear it tomorrow with some fleecy leggings  (it’s sub-zero here)
