Two essential tools for invisible zipper sewing: the invisible zipper foot and the regular zipper foot. The latter is useful when sewing the seams immediately below the zipper as seen below.

The pattern included a woven belt meant to be tied. Mine had a finished dimension approximately 42" long and 1" wide. Having a handy dandy loop turner helped when it was time to turn the belt right side out.
The Finished Garment
|View of pocket's wrong side.|
|View of the hem. I had to add a hem facing to extend the hem length as I was short on fabric.|
|Shown here with a J. Crew tee purchased a long long time ago.|
|Paired with a recently sewn Salme Hannah top. For pattern used, check out my review here.|
|Worn with top tucked out (belt removed to reduce bulk). The top shown here was a recently sewn version of Burda 8987 which I originally blogged about here.|
Finally paired with Paco Peralta draped top which posted about here.
