Zippers and Knits - Part 2

Ripping the zipper out was not quite as time consuming as I thought it might be. I used the ripping method in the picture below.

I added a 1/4" strip of Fusi-knit to the existing strip and re-inserted the zipper.
Much better! I now have a nice smooth zipper and my waist seam is still perfectly aligned.
I'll do a post on my technique for lining up a seam with an invisible zipper when I post the completed pics of the dress. I still need to attach the collar, insert the sleeves, and hem. I hope to finish before the end of the week.
