These are #15 molded tooth zippers. In England, these are called 20 gauge. I'm now stocking these in SEPARATING zippers & as yardage. Only Black for right now, but am thinking red or purple teeth on black tape. These are used a lot for costuming because they are so big (yes, that is a quarter next to the box & pin) & the quarter also fits inside the ring on the pull. They are on my website: Monster Zippers

I was so happy to have my tacker needles for this project! When done, this job didn't look too hard but the fabric is burn-out silk velvet that took over 7 months to get, it shipped in 13 pieces from about 3 mill runs. All of the hems were reinforced then hand sewn. All of the 97 yards of trim was then hand applied! It took Mary, Kathleen & me 4 weeks of 10 hour days to complete. Took Ted 3 hours to hang!
