I have searched but I can't find an answer to this question - although I'm sure I've read somewhere that you can shorten zips - don't know if it was on craftster or elsewhere.
Anyway, I confidently bought a 6" zip yesterday for a skirt I am making, and this morning I've realised that the pattern calls for a 9" zip.
I can't get another for aaaages, but I have a reallly long old zip - can I shorten it for my skirt??
PS my husband bought this new ergonomic keyboard which is all curved and dome shaped and wierd. So sorry if I'm tying badly at the mo.
