Yesterday I sat down and started to set in this zipper. This was the step in sewing these pants that I was most worried about. A zipper?! In pants?! This seemed to me like the hardest bit of sewing I would ever do. Of course this is how I felt about sleeves and button holes and I've completed projects with both of those.
I had to read and re-read and go over the directions for the zipper a bunch of times. The first few times it made no sense, but slowly it started to come together. By the tenth time I had ready the instructions I finally understood what I needed to do. Although I was still skeptical that I knew what I was doing.
