Repairing a zipper: instructions for replacing it

  • Gently pull out the zipper.

  • Fix the replacement zipper in the appropriate place with pins.

  • Open the zipper and stretch it into the presser foot of your

    sewing machine

    .

  • The

    lock stitch

    is sewn on the left side of the zipper from top to bottom until something is in front of the connecting piece.

    Note the distance to the teeth here.

    This should be one and a half centimeters.

  • Raise the presser foot and close the zipper.

  • Lower the presser foot again and stitch from above to the end of the zipper.

    Now turn the fabric 90 degrees and continue quilting until you are about half a centimeter from your right teeth.

  • Now the fabric is turned back 90 degrees to topstitch from bottom to top until you reach the connector.

  • Raise the sewing foot, move the slider down and complete the seam.
