Okay, here goes the zipper. I have the lining in. First, I decided to put seam binding around the armholes because the tweed unravels and I feel it needed more support. Now, I need to put int he zipper. I would have liked to do an invisible zipper however, I did not find the right color. I suppose I could have used white. But, I am picky about things like that! So, in by hand it goes!
