Pants Pattern Adjustments : Lengthen or Shorten Legs

1 min read


Pant length is another one of those things that vary, even between people of the same height. 

Where the pant hems sit on you will ultimately depend on your own personal leg length.

But the good news is, getting the length right for your pants is the easiest adjustment you can make. Below I outline both lengthening & shortening the leg length.

Note: It refers to the Urban Pants by Pattern Emporium, but can be applied to most pants. If your pattern has no adjustment lines, add your own halfway between the knee & the crotch & then halfway between the knee & the hem.
