The pants are a slim pant pattern and I used stretch wool for my material. Now I would like to make them out of a stretch denim. What I had to do was change the hem in the pants by eliminating the actual hem on the pattern and just add a 5/8" hem. Then I cut a strip of paper and slide the paper underneath the bottom of the pants pattern and traced the shape of both sides of the pants leg on both sides of the pants pattern making about a 3 inch separate hem. I then marked the paper at the half way point and added an angular vent leaving 3/4" from the top wider edge. (See my paper guide above) I tried on my pants and made sure that this was exactly where I wanted my hem plus the 5/8" seam allowance. I then cut out my material using my hand made pattern and sewed it on the bottom of my pant leg before I sewed the side seam. I trimmed my seam allowances to 1/4 inch and turned my hem right side out. Then I did three rows of of double needle around the bottom of the pant leg. I will definitely be making more of these pants. They are also very comfortable with just an elastic waist. They look good with a long sweater!
