perforated marking tape on top of the centered seam line. The tape
should be the length of the zipper (7” long for this exercise).

Replace the Standard Presser Foot with the Zipper Foot. Adjust the

foot to the left of the needle.

On the right side of the fabric, stitch around the zipper. Pivot the fabric

on the needle at the corners, using the edge of the tape as a guide.

Turn fabric to right side and remove the tape and the basting. Press.
