I am not sure that this is a zipper problem, or what the heck is going on but.... I bought these jeans for my fiance from the gap outlet they have a weird gap in the front flap that covers the zipper. It curves off to one side, now I am not sure if the zipper is stitched in crooked (doesn't look that way) but can you girls take a look at these and see if you can figure out what's up with them?

hmm, looks like an error was made in the fly sewing.  like the front piece might be curved or too long?

the front piece seems to be straight, but the too  long idea may be totally right. So I should just measure it and take it down a bit, you think?

Hi'  I'm new to this site, but have been sewing for almost 40 years for at least 20 professionally.  Yes that makes me old! haha
I think the zippper is sewed in properly, the problem is with the waitband.  Unsew the waistband where the botton hole is about 2 or 3 inches from the  the beginning.  Feed the fabric at the folded edge of the zipper flap into the waitband until the bunp disappears.  Resew the waistband using a leather point needle and jean thread or buttonhold twist. Let me know if this works.  Loulou
