I love the site Fashion Incubator because it’s a sewer’s dream. Kathleen Fasanella and crew are experts in this world and the detailed tutorials are amazing. Check out their tutorials archive (word doc) with a list of their popular topics. (Don’t miss the fitting and sizing series). Here is a great tutorial on how to shorten a zipper to fit your project. It’s a scary thought to cut a zipper, but Kathleen gives you all the steps to do it well. Bookmark this site or add it to your RSS reader! Link.
