Where on earth can you find a six inch separating zipper that isn't sold as a 5 000 piece minimum order? Anyone? I would really appreciate the help on this one.
You see, I picked up Vogue 1507 and I'm dreaming about those pants in a white denim but I can't find a 6" separating zipper. I've checked high and low, at all the fabric stores in the city and I've checked online as well. Even Vogue's online fabric store doesn't carry 6" separating zippers. Oh Vogue patterns, how you tease me with a desirable design!
I'm not giving up hope. I actually did pick up a nine inch separating zipper, the smallest length that I could find.
The thought was to try and remove those metal clasps and reapply them three inches below. Just one flaw in my plan. My right hand is swollen today and my fingers are killing me. Could it be that the sewing gods are trying to tell me something?
Like maybe I shouldn't sew "fitted through hips" pants? Naw, that can't be it. So the search for this little treasure continues. Has anyone seen a six inch separating zipper in their corner of the world? Perhaps buried in your zipper collection? That you wouldn't mind selling?
