Zipper ripper - McCalls 8405

I wore this outfit for my husband's graduation and I can fit into it again but the zipper was in the back and I stuggled getting it on and off. It's not a snug fit, I just have a body with curves. The fabric is a slub silk and I used sheer weft to help keep it's shape, however, this makes it difficult to dress. So this weekend, I unpicked the zipper and place an invisible zipper in the left seam. For some reason, when I originally made this top I sewed the side seams last, so I wouldn't have to ease the sleeves as the shoulder seam so the invisible zip was easy to sew up. As you can see, I've placed a hook and eye in the back neckline, so I have and easier time dressing.
