Lay the zipper over the basted part of the seam so that the zipper teeth are directly over the seam. To baste in place, you have several options: 1) pin and machine baste, 2) secure with Steam-A-Seam 2 or other fusible tape, 3) secure with Wonder Tape or other wash-away basting tape. I used the fusible tape, but I think the wash-away tape might be your best bet. Whichever way you do it, attach the zipper to the selvadge only.
