Take a moment to look at your invisible zipper. The part with the teeth is actually folded out over the rest of the zipper (I'm holding it up to reveal the underside of the teeth in this picture). When sewing your invisible zipper to your fabric, you want to sew in this space as close to the teeth as possible so that you actually end up underneath them. An invisible zipper foot can help you do fold the teeth out of the way. Ironding the zipper so that the teeth are unfolded away from the rest of the zipper tape also helps (remember to set the iron on low so that you don't melt the zipper).
