This most recent Sew News Magazine, March 2008, features Rosebud and a detailed How-To of Islander Sewing Systems Invisible Zipper Insertion on page 17. She goes thru Hand control, Preparation and Insertion, all the way to adding a Facing or a Lining.
Its a great way to get an introduction to the technique without spending the big bucks for the Easy Zippers! DVD by Janet Pray and Rosebud, though I think I should splurge. I learned 3 zippers techniques in my class, invisible, lapped and a standard, but I know that there are a few more in the DVD I could use some tips on!
The last Threads Magazine, January 2008, also featured Rosebud on pg. 65. They did the Lapped Zipper in Threads. Its another great presentation worth a look and learn.

This estate sale did not have a woman's form, but it did have this child's form. I didn't have a child's form!! So, now I do.... Hurray!
I also bought 6 vintage shirts to sell on another venue. Sigh, an addict!
