For this zipper, it may be easiest to give yourself a 1" seam allowance (to do this, cut the fabric 3/8" wider for that seam). Place your zipper in position, and mark your fabric at the end of the zipper right at the metal stop tab. Sew your seam (with a 1" margin or 5/8" if you didn't cut the extra allowance) right up to the point you marked, leaving the seam open where the zipper will be. For this picture, the zipper will start right above where that pink seam ends.
