Heather from Feather’s Flights shows how to add an exposed zipper to the front of a dress. It’s a cute detail, but it also has a very practical purpose. It turns a regular dress into a nursing dress! She came up with the design because she needed a dressy look to wear to a cousin’s wedding, but she also needed to be able to nurse her baby while she was there. She made the dress from silk yardage, but you could also start with a purchased dress. Go to Feather’s Flights for the tute.
