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). When visualising this, it seems to me that I would need to do the flat-felled seams first (one pressed to either direction, so as to make less of a lump at the groin?) and then sew up the crotch over them afterwards.
How important is the order of operations at this point – and what would be a good finish for the crotch seam?
