Fly Front Zipper

Fly Front Zipper

This lesson is how to sew the fly front zipper, a popular zipper often used on jeans, trousers and skirts. This lesson begins by showing you how to sew the crotch seam of the pant sampler and how to change your machine foot to a zipper foot in preparation for setting the zipper.

You will learn the techniques involved in sewing the fly facing and fly shield, how to insert the zipper to the facing and how to double stitch the zipper to the fly shield. You’ll also learn how to finish the zipper by tacking the facing and shield together at the bottom.

Once you have mastered a fly zipper sampler out of muslin, move on to setting one into an actual garment. Add to your zipper library by trying our other zipper lesson samplers.
