How to sew a zipper - 4 ways

Olivia lined dress with zipper PDF sewing pattern

European: 62-104 International: 6 mo-4/5 yr 5-12 yr

Our lovely OLIVIA dress features a bodice lining, hidden zipper, and sleeves that are gathered at the shoulder seam. We love the way OLIVIA looks when piping is incorporated in the seam between the bodice and the skirt. Alternately, rick rack or other types of ribbon could be sewn to the surface once the dress is complete. This is a wonderful pattern for special events such as holidays, weddings, or parties.

Skill Level: Beginners and up

Recommended fabrics: Cotton lawn

Notions: Coordinating thread, a 22cm (9") hidden zipper, optional rick rack or piping

Seam Allowance: The pattern includes 1cm (3/8") seam allowance
