My trousers pattern instructs me to sew the crotch seam and then to sew up the inside leg seams; I want to do the leg seams as flat-felled seams (for strength, and because I only have a straight-stitch machine).

How important is the order of operations at this point – and what would be a good finish for the crotch seam?
Thank you, that is good advise.
