I recently purchased a Knit Simple fall 2009 magazine at the supermarket and it has an article on properly sewing a zipper in a sweater.
It recommends closing the zipper and pinning it to the garment. Pinning close to the teeth will hide the fabric sides of the zipper. Baste the zipper in place using a running stitch on the right side, or whipstitch it in place on the wrong side.
Personnaly, I have always done both. It does a better job of holding the zipper in place. Good luck.
