  • You can take it to an Alterations Shop, or maybe even a Bridal Shop Seamstress, but they'll probably charge you an arm and a leg! Or you could try to replace the zipper yourself. If you want an "easy fix", you can take out the zipper and put in velcro, or a button???

  • Take it to a drycleaner who does alterations and repairs. It won't cost too much.

  • yep, take it to a shop, the zipper teeth are out of alignment, it's pretty easy fix for them to do at the dry cleaners or other alterations shop.

    although, if you aren't worried about trying to fix it yourself, here's instructions
