Thanks so much for the tutorial. I've read like 3 different ways of doing this and yours made the most sense to me. Smiley

I feel so empowered... Zippers all around!!! Wink

When you all shorten zippers, do you shorted the open end or the closed end? I've seen instructions for both, but uncertain which would be better. How do you create the new stops?

Thanks.

I do it by sewing many times, tightly, around and around at the end towards the current stop. This makes a good new stop and you can cut off the rest at that end a half-inch or so past the new stop.

Sewpixie, every time I put in a inside zippered pocket I just wanna hug you!!  Your tutorial really took away the fear and mystery of installing a zipper.

Cheers Smiley
