I tend to avoid making garments with fastenings because the thought of buttonholes and zippers and the multitude of things that can go wrong rather puts me off. But I have actually managed to conquer the buttonholes and I guess the next step is to try inserting a zipper. This actually sounds like a fairly simple project to start with. Its all well documented with a video as well as written instructions.Wish me luck!
