Is there a zip devil in the wardrobe wrecking my clothes?

February 5, 2018

The most popular trend with zips in garments is the hidden or invisible type. In essence they are like most things brilliant when they are working but when they stick in seams or no longer work they need to be replaced and its a very common clothing alteration.


An elegant dress looks fantastic with a well sewn invisible zip but when there are a few layers of fabric or seams join they do have a tendency to stick and then break. Invisible zips are sewn very close to the zip teeth and can very easily catch on fabric causing the break or stuck situation.
