This spring, toddlers will be cuter than ever in this adorable shortall with a funny goldfish appliqué.
I don't understand how to sew the cuffs so that they can turn up at the crotch area. Directions are very unclear to me. I have sewn the lining to the top and to the cuffs, but when/how do I sew the crotch? Do I fold up the cuff first, and then sew the crotch? Is it different on the back and the front?
Thank you for contacting us ! For that section of the instructions, the lining is pinned to the main shortall fabric along the cuff and the crotch edges. You’d then stitch the entire lower seam (crotch and just inside the previous piping stitching). The cuffs get rolled up after you’ve stitched and pressed.
Please note that the crotch is not sewn together, it is buttoned or snapped for diaper changes. The lining is sewn to the crotch front and back, but the front and back are not sewn together.
Hope this helps
Happy sewing !
