Adding an Overlay to your flush zipper pockets gives a lovely finish to your Tremont — and it’s easier than it looks!
Sue of Dreamscape Studio added Zipper Overlays to her gorgeous Tremont Crossbody Bag when she tested this sewing pattern for me. I love how Sue’s overlay looks and thought I’d create a tutorial video with free templates in case others would like to give this option a try.
