Remember when I said that Ivy was growing like a weed? These pants were the perfect length 3 weeks ago. Everything else about them fits just fine, and they are some of my favorite pants she has. So instead of putting them into a bin for someday I' decided to put them to good use.
I took one leg and folded up at about the height I wanted. Can you see how I folded it in by bring up the hem?
Here is what it looks like from the inside of the pant leg.
Pin it in place really well. Making sure to match up the side seams. Do you like my new pretty red pins? I hate pinning mostly because I hated my crappy pins. So I got some new ones. Maybe if they are pretty I will enjoy them more
Sew right down the other stitching lines. A little side note is that if you think your machine will have a hard time going through those thick denim side seams, just turn you wheel by hand to prevent needles breaking and that annoying "your machine is going to blow up" buzzing sound.
Now she's got some new capris! This works best with a trouser style or wide leg pants, that has a larger hem at the bottom.
She's still waiting for the flood, but in a much cuter way!
