How to Vol 2: Save Awkwardly Baggy Pants in Just One Move

Measure the leg dimensions of a pair of pants you own that fit you well

Turn the baggy pants inside out, mark the measurements you took off the other pants, or your own desired size, on the inside seam, from one ankle up to the crotch and back down to the other ankle

Be careful not to take too much off the actual crotch area, your final pants could end up very misshaped

Pin or hand stitch the new mark, sew up from one ankle, turn and head back down the other

Cut off the excess material, about 1cm from the stitch

If you desire and your machine has the capabilities, finish the new edge

Enjoy your new old pants
