My husband is a tall drink of water and these dress pants were a smidge too short. He was forbidden to wear them because that Pee Wee Herman look just doesn't look right at the office.
Dress pants typically have about a 1 1/2 to 2 inch hem allowance. I let the hems out, but there wasn't enough fabric left to hem them back up. My solution was to cut two 2 1/2 inch wide strips of fabric, make them into tubes the same width as the bottom of the pant leg, and sew them around the very bottom of each leg (right sides together). I used a 1/4 inch seam to preserve as much of the length of the pants as possible. I then hemmed the raw edge of the new fabric, turned it to the inside of the pants so that none of it showed from the outside, and whipstitched it in place.
Banned pants are ready for action again!
