"Learn how to lengthen pants by letting out the hem and rehemming with a hidden bias hem tape. This technique works well on dress pants. I’m updating this post with some new pictures and more information. There’s a tutorial for lengthening skinny pants and a tutorial for lengthening cropped wide leg pants. One uses single fold bias tape, and the other one uses a bias strip of fabric. The sewing technique for altering is similar for both pairs of pants. "
