Hi, I bought this great faux leather jacket from Maurices and I love it, but instead of zips on the end of the sleeves, there's a slit and a snap, but I like the look of zippers better. 



Here's a detail of the sleeve that's in there. the coat is lined.


I have some alterations experience but not too much zipper experience--all i know how to do is replace a fly front zipper in a pair of jeans.

Also, I'm certain I can get the material under my presser foot--the material is very thin, so no worries about that.

Can anyone point me to a tutorial?

thanks so much!

i wish i could help but the only experience i have with zippers is putting them in dresses or skirts.  i have a pair of pants that i would love to replace the zipper on but i haven't made that attempt yet.  good luck!  i love the jacket, btw.
