MODULE 1 • Lesson Prep
|1||For our lapped zipper with back facing sampler, we have prepared two back body pieces and two back facing pieces. If this were not a sampler but an actual garment, we would interface the facings.|
|2||We stitched the zipper to right side of our back-sampler piece, following the instruction from our Lapped Zipper lesson.|
