Today’s Google doodle honors Gideon Sundback, developer of the modern zipper. I suppose I like zippers well enough but I really like when Google has a doodle you can play with.
I don’t like sewing zippers into clothes. I can never make them look nice and neat. I actually avoid anything that requires a zipper and haven’t had to sew one in years but I have a new dress pattern that will have one. I have been contemplating sewing it into the side instead of the back but then I’m not sure how I would do the pockets. This pattern doesn’t actually have pockets but pockets are essential.
