Machine or Hand Sew the Zipper?

I finished the I cord. It took two attempts to find the correct method. The sleeves are calling me, I am ignoring them. Looking for input as to what you found worked best for the zipper. It would be faster to machine sew but curious as to what everyone else found for the best result. Thanks for your input.


  • I started to machine sew my zipper in but my machine started acting up. I then sewed the other half in by hand. I wouldn't say one is any easier than the other. If you do machine sew, make sure you pin and baste it well so it doesn't move. My hand sewn side is holding up just as well as the machine sewn side, and it really didn't take too long to do it by hand.
