STITCH folded raw edge of lining pieces. (I’m a big fan of using a zipper foot for edge stitching.)

STITCH again closer to zipper to hold zipper in place.

All layers pressed and ready to be stitched. Note that the main fabric on the flap overhangs the zipper fabric. It will cover the zipper to hide it when we are finished.

With the zipper stitched in place, PRESS back both pieces of fabric. My folded edge lined up with the end of the zipper teeth, except on the “flap” main fabric. I made the fold over hang the zipper so that when finished it will cover the zipper completely. (see “Step 4 Completed” for more detail) It was an ugly zipper. I didn’t want to look at it.

PIN the zipper between the lining piece and the main pieces. Then BASTE your layers together.

The fabric edge of the zipper should line up with edge of the pocket and flap. The right sides of the pieces of fabrics should be facing each other.

NOTE: The zipper I had was too long and I needed to shorten it. I should have shortened it from the top/open end instead of the bottom/closed end. It worked out OK though.
