Hand Sewn Zippers for Skirts

Sew zipper in like a real tailor, and use your hands to the task instead of your sewing machine.

Yep. Hand-sewn zippers are one of the features that separates skrædderiet from clothing sewing (as industrial sewing also called). And though it may sound like something untenable something that goes up more or less by themselves, so I can reassure you that it is in no ways is the case.

A hand-sewn zipper is intended just as fast as a machine sewn zipper, assuming it is sewn right in.

What “right” is, it comes a little depends on who you ask. But it we come to later.

First, I would like to show you a few examples of the fabric, where it makes good sense to sew the zipper in your hand instead of on the sewing machine. One of them is blonde, which I have used to skirt in the picture below. Here I have made a kjolelynlås in the skirt with the technique, you can see in the video further down.

When should you choose to sew the zipper in your hand?

As you can see farther down in the video, so is a hand-sewn zipper a good in English to clothing that is sewn in the lace fabric. If there is prior in your clothes or not is not so important. It is the substance that makes a hand sewn zipper is preferable.

Have you before in the vehicle, you must not think about the inside of the vehicle with the zipper and seam allowance because you SEW lining to in hand (of course), so it’s going to cover the seams and seam allowance.

On the other hand, you have not thought you to fore vehicle, so you must have General sømrummets borders in a way that is appropriate for the fabric and design. It is not so fine, if one can see unravel edges that bristle out from under the zipper tape on the inside of the vehicle, so it you must have mastered before you begin to sew the zipper in.

LACE FABRIC

Blonde you are going to pull out of shape in the itypeusa, because there is often a big difference between those areas where there is much thread/pattern and the areas where there is no pattern. The risk you minimize, by sewing by hand, because you can control the fabric and the stitching stitch for stitch.

In the lace skirts, where I have recently chosen to sew the zipper in your hand, I’ve lined nederdelene and sewn zipper in both blonde and before all at once. And it is the technique I will show you in this post.

In most lace stitches from the stitching of the zipper fabric will disappear right down in the fabric, so it actually is invisible, that you have stitched the zipper in. of course, especially when you choose a trådfarve that match your fabric, and not using a screaming contrast like I do in the video.

DELICATE MATERIALS

You can also use this in English to sew the zipper in delicate materials such as silk chiffon, a thin, thin georgette silks in general or to other living and delicate materials that already has drifted far away from sylinjen before you get taken off the lid of the box with pins.

In the light and vibrant fabrics it fits better into the overall impression, often if the zipper is sewn so easily and invisibly on as possible, and you have not had good luck with a traditional machine-sewn invisible zipper, so is the hand-sewn zipper so an obvious option.

It is not at all matter, it will be a completely invisible zipper. How it’s going to look like, depends on the fabric and the stitches that you choose. But no matter what, so it often fits better into the overall image with a hand sewn zipper in the delicate materials, than a machine sewn zipper, which may come to seem a bit lumpy.

BEADS OR SEQUINS

Sew you in fabric with sequins, beads or other ornaments that are not to get through the sewing machine, then it’s an obvious choice to sew the zipper in your hand. Here is you don’t have to remove the fabric decorations, where you need to sew, but can just vary your stitches, so that they take into account the location of beads and sequins.

In this type of fabric stitches will almost always disappear completely in the tangle of garnish, and it doesn’t matter if you have to let the stitches “dance” a little, to get around the beads.

Preparing to sew the zipper in your hand

Before you can sew the zipper in the seam, you must have prepared the substance and nails. You can view a detailed guide to the preparation of the online course “sewing techniques No.2 – ZIPPERS”, as syteknikken here is a part of.

But in short, you must:

* Press vlieseline behind the zipper, if you can get to it in the fabric.

* Sew the seam from the zipper slit and down.

* Ri zip slot together by hand.

* Mark the bottom of the zipper the slot with a pair of ri-stitches.

* Press the seam allowance from each other.

* Place the zipper so the teeth or the spiral lies exactly on top of the riede seam.

* Ri zipper fixed approx. 1/3 inside the zipper tape from the edge. You must be able to sew your final seam approx. in the middle of the zipper tape or a tad closer to the teeth/spiral.

The zippers that are suitable to be sewn by hand, are common bukselynlåse or kjolelynlåse. You can’t use this in English in an invisible zipper, as the type of zipper is not stable enough, if not will be sewn as an invisible zipper (that you can also learn in the online course ).

Unfortunately, there is often confusion about dress zippers and invisible zippers, but once you’ve gone through the online course you are no longer in doubt, and so you do not need to ask in the store – so do you know if you’ve got the right zipper. And otherwise, home and revise module 1 in your zip course.

Is your zipper longer than the opening, then it is a good idea to short the of, so you do not have a long loose flap at the bottom of the zipper. You can exit the zipper at the bottom with a bias tape or fabric remnant, to get a nice finish and to avoid the zipper scratch a hole in your pantyhose (if it is a dress or skirt) or in the lining. Or just scrunch. (Zipper including is not sewn by hand, but end at the bottom works both for machine-made and hand-sewn zippers).

Sew zipper in your hand – how do you do (3 methods)

In my research for this post is I come across 3 different stitch types is recommended to sew the zipper in your hand. I myself have been accustomed to using one of them, namely the method of dot-sting, and it works in many different fabric types, and durable is fine for general use.

The other 2 methods is behind-sting and common short ri-stitches. Both methods I’ve seen at the tailors, and they work without a doubt. What you choose in each individual case must be approached in drug selection and visibility of the stitching, and on the purpose of the vehicle – i.e. what it should keep to, and how much the zipper must be used.

I show you all 3 methods in the video, so you can choose which one you want to test first.

All the preparatory steps to sew a zipper in your hand, you can see which picture guide in the online course “sewing techniques No.2 – ZIPPERS”, as the hand-sewn zipper is a part of. Of course, you can also learn a lot of other sewing techniques for zips, so you can choose exactly the in English that fits your fabric and your sewing project.
