Zipper is still bubbling on McCall's 5466. I'm trying to hold on and not scrap this one.
So far I interfaced the zipper area - was I supposed to put it on the seam allowance? I also handbasted on a strip of stay tape then put the zipper back on. Before this, it was a ripply bubble, now it's smooth, lol
This was a HARD pic to take I was all twisted up trying to capture the bubble above my butt. If you can tell from the pic the bubble juts out about an inch below the waist seam. I've never done a long zipper on a fitted garment.
Now I'm thinking it's either type of zipper (invisible) OR the fit (the bodice is fine but should I let some out in the skirt) OR the underlining which is a stretchy poly/nylon (prolly NOT the best choice.) Would I have better luck using a regular zipper?
I want to make this work so I can get a more expensive fabric, cause the dress is cute on me - toot-toot! The neckline pleats enhances my upper bod & it nips in at the waist it also skims the curve of my thighs before it flares out at the bottom making it look like I might have a little hip action.
Here's that underlining.i dunno. I'm thinking I need to go on and start cutting out my pants.
