First of all prepare the main fabric before inserting the zip.
This will be the side of the zip that will make the overlap.
Now prepare the lining, before stitching the seam.
1. Machine single layer of fabric, The length of the stitching will be the same as the stitching for attaching the zip. One side is 15mm from the edge, the other 25mmmfrom the edge pivoting and stitching to the edge of the fabric.
2. Trim approx 20mm and snip into the right angle
