I am so excited to show you my special method for sewing a beautifully neat and very comfortable snap crotch for your Rowan bodysuit! I must admit I have seen a lot of snap crotch finishes, and didn’t really love them. The thing that is great about this method is that there is no fussy fiddly topstitching stitching, the crotch facing is sewn all in one go, and is perfectly neat and fully enclosed. I think you’re going to love it as much as I do!
For your facing you can basically use any leftover scraps of fabric you have. I’ve used cotton poplin, voile and even silk cotton. It’s up to you, pretty much any lightweight woven fabric will do fine. Another thing you’ll need is some snaps. In this tutorial i’ll use sew in snaps, since they are the most readily available – but I also use Kam snaps for most of mine, as i have a press (from when i imagined i would make some nappies) and they’re fast and easy to install.
Alright lets get to it!
