Can anyone recommend a tutorial for lining a sleeveless dress that covers the question of how you sew together dress and lining at CB zipper? I've seen two different methods--one where you sew the shoulder seams first and one where you sew them last--but neither of these discusses what to do about the zipper.
I like Karen C's advice for letting the lining hang loose for a regular zipper and then tacking lining to zipper by hand, but have tried this method for the invisible zipper. I think the invisible tutorial may be what I am seeing in RTW.

Many thanks, all! I wound up doing something like the invisible zip in the tutorial. Hand stitching might have been a pain on a stretchy knit lining. Anyway, it went in OK, and I'm almost ready to mail it, barely in time!
