That is an invisable zipper foot, probably quite old.

I made the prom gowns this year for my twin grand daughters and of course the zippers were invisible zippers. I had not sewns clothes in quite a while, so I forgot that you had to have a special foot. Did not know if I still had the foot and could not find it. We live about one hour one way from a store, so I improvised and yes, you can put an invisible zipper in without the foot. Don't ask how it goes, but seeing this picture, I know, I have that foot somewhere. p.s. The gowns came out beautiful.

You can put in an invisible zipper with a pin tuck foot or a small piping foot. Oh and yes that is a very old inisible zipper foot.

Yup...that's an invisible zipper foot. Don't know about anyone else, but I'd rather put in a regular zipper anyday over an invisible one...I never did master that trick.

I had one back in the late 60s! It was for invisible zippers and worked great!

It is only one piece from a set of Unique Zipper parts for installing invisible zippers. I purchased mine in the early 70s. Still have it and have not used it in years, LOL. The copyright date on the instructions is 1967.
