CONCEALED ZIPPER CONSTRUCTION STANDARDS



These standards are to be used in the following product categories where concealed zippers are common:

Dresses
Skirts
Blouses
Pants

1. Ann Taylor has pre-approved 2 primary suppliers of concealed zippers, YKK & Coats-Opti. All concealed zippers should be
sourced from either of these brands.
2. It is preferred that Zippers are ordered to length.
3. Zippers cut to length must be secured and clean finished at the end with lining when used in product without a lining.
4. Shell fabric seam should be reinforced with interlining/stay tape prior to setting zipper.
5. Areas of bulk on the seam should be reduced by one of the following methods :
Medium-Heavyweight fabrics use open seams.
Lightweight fabrics: Open seams or if using closed seams press shell. seam allowance and lining seam allowance in
opposite direction
6. Lining should be set min from zipper teeth at inside.
7. Zipper tail should be tacked to shell on one side only
8. Clean finished Lining seam should be closed from below zipper opening at base.
9. Concealed zipper size will be specified by TD.

Suppliers are required to achieve the objective of a concealed zipper that performs its function satisfactorily at all times. If these
standards are at any time found to be either insufficient or impede the achievement of this objective the supplier is expected to raise
this concern to AT TD or QA.
