Stitch the Crotch Seam
How-To Pants

Start at the crotch and sew up to waist. Repeat with the back side.

Rain Blanken
Start at the bottom front of the crotch where the legs meet. Straight stitch from the point up to the waistline. Repeat with the back of the pants, starting at the bottom and stitching to the waist.

Zigzag stitch the raw edges from front to back.

Next, you'll need to add buttonholes for a drawstring, or measure elastic for an elastic waistband.
