My friend Kathy has a favorite staple denim skirt that she loves. Sadly though, the zipper broke. I took it upon myself to offer to fix it and in about 5 minutes, it was done. I went to you tube to find a video (look at her other videos on the sidebar to see how to do the left side and finish). It's much easier to see it done than read the manual - it's always easier when you see it done). I recommend that you find a project that needs a zipper and put one in! For real, it's no harder than a regular seam.
