How to fix a separated invisible zipper??

AngelaBarbara's picture

Hoo, boy...I'm ready to tear my hair out over this one...I just finished this lovely dress, and was zipping it onto my dress form when I noticed that the zipper was coming undone from the bottom.  Now the darned thing is stuck on my dress form, and the zipper won't budge.  And, of course, it's for a cruise on which I am supposed to leave tomorrow! 

The zipper is not caught in the fabric, I checked. 

Does anyone have any advice that can help me salvage this???  If I somehow get the zipper slide down to the bottom of the zipper tape, can I "redo" the zipper by zipping it up again?

I don't think so.  As least, I haven't been sucessful at repairing invisible zippers.  My only sugession is to rip the zipper out and replace it.  Sorry.

What did you do to solve this problem?  My heart went out to you when I saw your post.  It indeed was a lovely dress.  Let us know how the cruise went.
