I'm putting together some school costumes and wondered about putting in zippers. When do you put them in? I've looked at some solo dresses and it seems the zippers are put in last? The first dress I made I put the zipper in the bodice piece and then sewed the remainder to the skirt when the dress was all assembled. It didn't come out as nice as I thought it would...any tips or suggestions?

I always sew my zippers in before I sew the side seams together. I find you get a very neat zipper this way, then I hand sew the remaining part of the zipper to the skirt at the very end.
