Think the modelling industry, hand-me-downs, or just buying something you love but which doesn't fit properly, and you can see why this project has been over-subscribed so much.

If you know how the bag clips that fold into each other work, then you know the principle of the ZipSeam. While the wearer can feel the seams in place, Huang notes that they are comfortable and flexible enough to allow the wearer to move naturally.
Huang has turned to Kickstarter to help him mass produce the ZipSeam and turn out a polished product. "The tooling will be quite costly," he explains.
US$8 will get a backer a set of two ZipSeams, enough to fold in the two sides of one item of clothing. The first wave of delivery for single, duo and triple packs of ZipSeams are sold out. Huang is now on his second and third wave delivery requests depending on the funding terms.
The request for funding ends on May 18. View the associated video here.
