Rich. I have never used that reinforcement like the video shows, and I have never had a problem.

With 1" overlap, I set the zipper on the window with only the teeth exposed, and I set the zipper tape on the top at 2" from the edge of the top.


Joe



Me, same as Joe...   and definitely need one inch overlap

I'd rather be sailing..  - but if ya gotta work it's nice to be around boats!

I bought the whole tape set from the Florida school and didn't see anything about  two dots. I just mark one dot on my frames and all I do is allow for the overlap when cutting my patterns on the table.

Me too, Mike.  But then it's easier with a one-man/woman shop.  I don't have to communicate my patterning marks or methods with anyone but myself.   I've also learned to make lots of notes on the pattern if it'll sit for a week or more before I can get around to the fabrication.

It's just the two dots either side of the tape. Above & below.

It took me ages to master the dot method, but once my Mum showed me how to do it correctly, it was easy:

hey

 person from the north,  i don't believe i saw an introduction or a hiya ?

 you do know Twat can be taken as offensive over here in the UK don't you ?

 Anyway, how about letting us know what you do and where you are ?
 maybe post up some pics ? we love pics here.

Oooo! I like it! It's like; I cut it twice and it's still to short!

Wow, different cultures sure are amazing! Here in Canada 'twat' is just another word for 'vagina'
