serging (one seam) pants the EZ way
I have tried to draw a graphic - it is rudimentary but I hope ya'll get the drift.
I serge across the bottoms of the pants to remove the raw edges. Then I put the two pieces together flat and serge the curves. Then line up the inside seams (place a pin at the center crotch seam only to keep them aligned properly) and starting at one end serge all the way across to the other end. Quick easy and ready for the elastic and hemming.
Special note - sometimes I tape the pieces together to eliminate the outside seam and make them into one seam pants. You can cut out a small sample and try out the technique to see how it works.
