Dreamer! today, we prepared for you a step-by-step post with instructions on how to sew a zipper fly!

Use the presser foot correctly for each sewing project, see its applications, and which stitches you can use it with.


And you can use it for this task.

Don’t worry if this is your first approach to sewing a zip; here is the link to a post we previously prepared for you to sew zips like an expert.

Without further ado, let’s look at the step-by-step.

Step 1

Make a rectangle of 1/2” by the length of your zipper and trace a line at the center along the length.

Step 2

Match with 2 diagonal lines from the edge to the center line forming 2 little rectangles on both sides.

Step 3

Then place a pin on both vertices as shown in the pic.

Step 4

Make a little hole with the seam ripper in the center line.

Step 5

Cut along the center line with your scissors (the pins will serve you as a limit).

Step 6

Remove the pins and cut by the diagonals to the corner.

Step 7

Flip the tabs to create an opening and iron them to flatten seams.

Step 8

Place your zipper with the wrong side facing up on the opening and pin it.
