This Winter, we bought all of our boys new coats.
We’e been battling Deege zipper since virtually the start. It began breaking after he worn it a couple of times and exchanging the coat wasn an possibility.
We stored that zipper working until it last dying breath. I determined to exchange it. It really easy, I thought I do a tutorial on it. Apart from, replacing a zipper is much, a lot cheaper than changing a coat.
Ready? Measure the zipper that needs to be changed.
Purchase a coat zipper in a matching shade and length.
I bought mine online. My nearest craft/sewing retailer is an hour and a half away. Boo!
Cut the broken zipper off as close to the teeth as you can. You might just unpick the zipper, however this was sooner.
Serge the uncooked edge to stop fraying.
Measure where you need your zipper and get ready to pin all the things into place.
Wait. Open your zipper earlier than you pin. It finest to have it out of the package deal.
Now, line it up where you want it and pin it into place.
