Thank you all for your nice comments. Here is another project:
Here is a close up of my very first invisible zipper. I was very happy with how it turned out. This blouse had lots of problems. It gaped a the neck so I put five pin tucks in which helped a lot. It was supposed to have sleeves but I felt like I was in a straight jacket with the sleeves in so I took them out and cut them into bias strips and then bound the armholes with the strips. That was the first time I had ever made bias strips. That turned out pretty well. I love the fabric. It has tiny little flowers and vines that really do match the maroon skirt. I think I over fit the top. It doesn't really wear well. The skirt is 100% polyester and feels very soft but doesn't hang or drape well so I'm not too thrilled with the whole project. I learned a lot and the blouse fabric was only $2.50! I got the end of the bolt.
It is funny what you see in pictures that you can't see in a mirror. So many pull lines at the waist. Sigh.
