One of Nathan’s Christmas presents from me was some new gym pants for our daily workouts. Lucky him!
But they are all made for ten foot tall basketball players!
Nathan and I are the same height, but he is taller in the torso and I am longer in the legs. Mostly this means we do a lot of readjusting the rearview mirror, but also means Nathan needed his new pants hemmed.
And I am the housewife.
So I made him try them on, and I pinned the current him to where he needs then to be.
That’s a wrinkley picture, but I promised I pinned them carefully.
Also, I pinned then this way so I could hem them but keep the current hem and cuff as is. Fun!
I sewed just under the old hem onto where I pinned:
Then I trimmed off the extra fabric that had been between the original cuff and new hemline:
Then I folded down the original cuff and had a new hemline!
Now his fancy gym pants are the perfect length:
Happy husband, happy housewife!
