I am making a cute little jacket for a newborn boy and I wanted to use a separating zipper. What is a good source for a small separating zipper? I can find lots of big ones, but not small. Thanks for the help.

Here's a link to the online catalog at The catalog web address differs from the direct access address here:

They have an assortment of separating zippers in many colors and lengths: 10, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 25 inches.

The 10 or 12 inch size should be about right for an infant jacket.

you also might consider snaps, they come is great pastels and bright colors , are a breeze to put on and you'll never have to try to zip a wriggling baby

Thanks! I measured and the length needed is 7 inches, so I may go with snaps or velcro. Thanks again.
