Talking with some fellow sewists lately- they hated doing zippers and preferred buttons! Honestly I don't know why- a zipper is so easy- a few pins two rows of stitching and DONE. In my experience no matter how often you practice a buttonhole on a scrap of fabric to exactly duplicate your garment it will come out perfectly on the practice piece but once you switch to your actual garment at least one of those suckers is going to act up and become a tangled mess that is so hard to fix and at that point the outfit is finished so not at a place that you can even do much about it easily. One of my friends sort agreed- only she hates all non quilt related sewing so avoids buttons or zippers entirely.
