– pants that are too long – pins – iron and ironing board – scissors or rotary cutter and mat – tailor’s chalk – needle and matching thread or – any sewing machine – a tape measure, clear acrylic ruler or hem gauge – a full length mirror
I like to place the heads of the pins at the bottom so I can easily grab them when the pants are inside out.
Mark the cutting line with a fabric marking pencil or tailor’s chalk on the inside of the pants.
Turn the pants right side out again and use quality sewing shears to cut off the extra pant leg fabric along the line that you marked.
Measure to make sure your hem is even. Press the new hem carefully.
