With the zipper basted in place, flip the fabric over to the right side. Starting at the bottom of the zipper on the right side, sew across the bottom and up the left side, leaving a 1/4" margin (you can use 1/4" tape to help you sew at the right distance). Repeat with the other side, starting at the right and sewing across the bottom and up the left hand side. You do not need to backstitch when you start your stitch because you will be reinforcing it by sewing across the bottom twice. This eliminates bulk and unsightly extra stitches.
