About 1/2 inch from your new stop- trim the zipper to size with OLD scissors and tuck the end into the pocket. I keep the zipper high enough so you can stitch in the ditch where the welt is joined to the pants.

It doesn't matter which way the zipper opens. I'm sorry I couldn't answer sooner, I hope this is useful to you. -Pat
