STEP ONE:

Lay the outer fabric on your work surface with the right-side facing up. Lay the zipper face-down on your work surface so that the top edge of the zipper aligns with the top edge of the outer fabric. Lay the liner fabric right-side down on top of the zipper so that top edges line up. Clip the pieces together and stitch across the top as shown above.
