How to fix a skirt with a broken zipper, without a zipper
Clothes with broken zippers. Annoying. I've had this skirt for over two years. I wore it once and the zipper wouldn't go back down...then I broke it. Should I rip out this one, and put in a normal one instead of an invisible? I would have to rip out a lot of seams just to get into it enough to put it in.
Less is more, and I had buttons that matched. So no $ required, I set out to fix it this way.
I sewed a zigzag stitch into a rectangle that would fit my buttons. I then used scissors and a seam ripper to open up the new holes.
I sewed my buttons on. Worked like a charm. You really only see one button when I'm wearing it, because of the sash.

I feel like I got something new and that ALWAYS feels good.
