Zip Zip Zippers

I am a beginner sewer and I am doing really so far on my Burda 8176 skirt, but the darn zipper is giving me fits!! I was working on it this afternoon and just got soo frustrated. I think my zipper foot is kind of getting stuck on the pull of the zipper. The seam on the zipper is not straight at all. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. I should also mention that right now I am just trying to make a zipper look good on some scrap muslin. So it's not like I am ruining my skirt.
I was hoping to get this skirt done before the end of Spring Break, but I don't think this is going to happen. I have to get this project done before April 12th. I have a scholarship luncheon to go to and I want to wear this skirt!! I will post pictures when I finish the skirt.
So after being frustrated with the zipper I started to work on the Favorite Things Prairie Girl Tunic. I was originally going to trace the pattern so I wouldn't ruin the pattern if I made the right size. Well I learned I don't really have the patient to trace the pattern. I bought this pattern about a week ago when we went to Lawrence for my Birthday, we stopped in Sarah's Fabrics along with an Amy Butler fabric for this Tunic.
