To make a Girls Stinger Bodysuit just takes one step further than making a plain swimsuit. The Zip! You need not be afraid of inserting a zip. You just need to get hold of some wash away tape. Using this tape to hold the zip will make sewing a breeze. If you join our Facebook Sewing Group you will see a post, with this picture, where members have shared where they get their tape or zips from. There are many places online where you can buy Wash Away Tape from and have it sent right to your door.
We have found zips in both Spotlight and Lincraft and some of these stores carry the tape also. In the instructions of the pattern, there are video links, showing you how to shorten your zips if too long and another to help you sew the zip into your garment, using the wash away tape.
Be prepared to be blown away by our tester’s gorgeous makes. They have gone all out with fabrics, photography, and look at those zipper installations. Such perfection!
