I have taken a membership of sewdirect.com as it gave me two free patterns and half price on any purchased. I am still waiting for the two free ones and confirmation of membership, but the half price patterns arrived and I am now a huge fan of Marcy Tilton designs.
The lace edged zips that I had to have are for Vogue 8499 which takes a zip for the back and one each for the large pockets on the sides of the skirt.
Marcy Tilton has her own blog with some wonderful examples of how her patterns have been used.

I also bought V 8693 which is a wonderful jacket pattern and V8813 for what I think will be my favourite dress.
