I am having the hardest time with this.  Can anyone tell me how to avoid the puckering at the bottom?  To my knowledge I've put the zipper in correctly, but the marks that are supposed to meet at the bottom are about 3/8" apart Sad  I've read everything I can find (books, online) about putting the zipper in, but nothing includes tips about how to avoid the puckering.

Thanks for any help!!

EDIT I guess asking for help is like motivation to make me do it... I got it all figured out  Cheesy

i'm glad you figured it out! for future reference though if you haven't seen it, sandra betzina has a great online tutorial in the threads website. i use it every time i want to do a fly front and it's kind of like my lucky charm i guess. i haven't had a problem since! (it's at the bottom)
