How to Sew: Invisible Zipper

Watch our helpful video guide: How to sew an invisible zipper. One of our Learn To Sew video guides.

You can also download a PDF copy of this tutorial.

This video shows how to sew an invisible zipper also known as a concealed zipper. We demonstrate two methods: with the facing on top and the facing underneath. You will need a zipper foot for your sewing machine. You can buy a specialist invisible zipper foot, which makes the process easier, but using a standard zipper foot will still work fine.
