    Not sure if this should go in links or in here since it's not quilting related. Someone wanted me to post the link.

    I'm 5' and I use this method with any "regular" length jeans. Works great!!

    I have tape-basted dress pants when I didn't have time to wait for alterations! (I don't trust myself with these). Worked just fine!

    Wow I thought I was the only person who took the lazy way out. I have hemmed jeans for years this way.
