DIY: Add an Exposed Zipper to Your Dress

I shared my love for Jenni from I Spy DIY before, and in January's issue of InStyle she shows you how to add a little edge to a simple dress. A perfect weekend afternoon project: 

What You’ll Need:
Sweater dress, zipper trim, and waterproof glue.

1. Measure down the center of the dress’s back to determine length of zipper trim required. Allow for two inches of trim above neck and below hemline.

2. Pin trim to dress to ensure zipper is straight. Working in 2-inch increments, remove pins, apply glue to dress, and attach trim. Hold in place for five seconds to secure. Fold loose ends into dress and attach with glue. Let dry for 24 hours. (Hand-wash only!)
