I’m in the process of finishing up a 1.8 oz Kinsman and wanted to post this tip I read about using Collins Wash-Away Wonder (double sided)Tape to hold the zipper rather then pins. I had tried this when using a draft tub and found it didn’t help any better then a basting stitch.
This second time I’m following Paul’s directions (for a change ;-)) and found the wonder tape just made the process a breeze. The tape holds the zipper more secure then pins and prevents the fabric from pulling. I’m not sure how much weights ha, ha, but it’s worth it!
The tape was available in my local sewing store.
