Invisible Zipper Foot 

An invisible zipper is most often used in clothing, when you do not want the teeth of the zipper to show.

Your stitches are formed incredibly closely to the zipper’s teeth for a neat, precise finish. It is very easy to use and tends to produce great results, due to the fact that the invisible zipper foot lets you see exactly where you are in relation to the zip and the foot intuitively follows the groove that it has found around the zippper’s teeth.

This is a foot that requires the careful use of your fingers. You must feel for the zipper teeth or cording that are sandwiched in between your outer fabric and your lining and then butt the side of the zipper foot up against the teeth or cord.
