Use your fingers to push out the corner--it will lie flat in the end. Press flat. To finish the rest of the seam, close the zipper and place the seam right sides together. Pull the unsewn ends of the zipper out of the way. Use a zipper foot to start as close to the stitches as possible and sew straight down the rest of the seam. You can also sew the edges of the zipper tape to the seam allowances--it makes for easier zipping and unzipping of your garment (sorry, I don't have a picture of this).
