Which seam to sew first on pants?
Starting at the crotch and ending at the bottom of the pant leg, pin together the inside of the pant legs. Use your sewing machine to sew a straight stitch with a 1/2-inch seam. Leave 1/2 inch before you start sewing the crotch. To reinforce your seam, use a zig-zag stitch along the raw edges that you just sewed.
Why do pattern pieces have a fold line?
On the Fold – Represented by a line with arrows pointing in a particular direction, the “on the fold” marking shows you where to position the edge of your pattern piece on a fold of your fabric. This allows you to cut a piece of fabric that is twice as large as the pattern piece.
