So here’s a zipper. Pretty tiny right? Not intimidating at all! Or at least, won’t be after this tutorial.(hopefully)
See more after the jump!
Then zip up the zipper a bit, and go back to stitch even closer to the zipper along the end. See how it angles out from the zipper? It’s hard to get close with the zip in the way, so once it’s out of the way, it’s much easier to sew closer and make it look better.
The nub serves as your indicator-if it is the same distance from the top of your garment on both sides you should be ok.
