Carolann to the rescue! If the crotch is simply cut on the straight of grain, does that mean I can just use a strip of fabric?
Pardon the impertinence, but I've never heard of using a facing on that part of the garment, and was curious about how it compares to the turned hem. Does it make the drawers more comfortable? More durable? Easier to sew? Nothing in particular, just an alternate construction method?
I like it because...well, for lack of a better description, it soaks up more sweat and doesn't chafe quite as badly in sensitive areas. I also find it more durable, but that's generally a given with the double layers of fabric.
