Use your sewing machine to stitch the seam line, then serge the edges. Top stitch the back seam and close the crotch. Cut the waist band to fit, resew onto the jeans and reapply the belt loop to cover the seam. It takes me about 1/2 hour. Good luck. I don't try to do the flat felled seam anymore. When these are done in the factory they are done on a special machine that makes it look real easy.

Ahhh.. thanks for the tips... I don't have a serger.. but that should be ok without one..
