Zipper Front T-shirt Refashion


As you may know I’m currently working on 30 days of T-shirts.  You can see my first post Embellished pockets here.  Today I’ve re-fashioned a V-neck Tee by inserting a zipper down the center.  What’s so cool is that you can wear it zipped or unzipped for a totally different look.


First, I ironed on some light weight fusible interfacing to the center of the t-shirt where I wanted to add the zipper to keep the fabric from stretching.  I drew some lines to follow while stitching.  I used a 7 inch zipper for this project.  Sewed along the stitching lines in the shape of a rectangle.  Once done stitching I cut down the center of my rectangle stitch.  Pressed down the edges of t-shirt for a finished edge along my zipper.  Insert zipper and pin into place. Topstitched the zipper in and my shirt is finished.
