    WOW! That sure is complicated. As far as I’m concerned, it is easiest to just baste the entire seam up, lay the zipper in and use the natural lines on the zipper tape as your markers. You also should never have to remove the garment and start over. Just pivot at the bottom, sew across and then pivot again and sew back UP the zipper. Done in about half the time! Then, open up the basted seam allowance.
