I have read all about how to size and stitch the mesh suit but I am hoping someone can provide a photo or more detail of what the stitched seem looks like with the ribbon that connects pieces together so that I can get started and make sure I'm doing it right.

Does the ribbon and stitch fold down under the seam (kind of like a T shape with the stuck being the bottom of the T and the two segments joined are the top)?

Hey there! I don't have photos, but double fold bias tape on the edges is what you're looking for I think. You just run the edges of the mesh between the folded bias tape and do a zigzag stitch. Hope that helps!
