There was a time when a zipper served no other purpose than to close a garment. Zippers have stepped out of their dark seams and have become design accents. We've seen lots of exposed zippers over the years, but I found a few ideas that I thought were rather nice. Some I'm sure you've seen before, but it's fun to be reminded. So I hope you enjoy today's zipper inspiration.
This jacket is amazing!this pattern from Silhouette Patterns.
The details of this top are so pretty.
I don't particularly care for the fabric, but I do like the design. Look closely and you'll see how the darts were manipulated so that the zippers close up the darts and the fullness is then radiated into the skirt.
This is from the 2014 Ballenciaga Fall line.
This jacket is very interesting. I think I might get lost as to what zips where!
Use a zipper to create a convertible collar/hood.
An interesting idea from Saf-T-Pocket Patterns. The zipper conceals a pocket for your valuables.
How about this to die for zipper application? This is from Bunny of http://lasewist.blogspot.com/ You can find the post on this zipper HERE.
Have you ever thought, "if only I could find a transparent zipper?" Here's a link.
Have a wonderful week!
