Unrelated to what I normally post. However, this is the best hidden zipper I’ve ever sewn. This is a pencil skirt that has been laying around waiting to be sewn together for about 6 months now. I must say the finished piece is not too shabby.

Please ignore the stray bits of cat hair, Eevee thought it necessary to add her fur to this.

Happy Tuesday!
