I havnt used it yet, but my sister in law gave me a special foot for my sewing machine that is made for zippers--------looks pretty slick!
I always put my bugnet on first, sew it right on. Then I sew the zipper on the bugnet with it together, the pulls facing each other so it can be opened either direction, then once I have a row of stitches in each side of the zipper, doing the widest side first, in other words, on the far outside of the zipper. Then I cut the bugnet right down the middle and sew the second seam on each side of the zipper, this time the seam goes close to the zipper coils, then fold the extra bugnet back on itself and hold down with a zig zag or some other stitch to keep all loose ends out of the zipper coils.
There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion.
