Cuff your pants, pop on a pair of heels, and out you go.
You can easily and quickly “tailor” any pants for a cuffed, smart look. I did this for a pair of retro leopard print pants, but I think this would be fab on a pair of mens suit pants as well. I’m sure you’ll agree heels are a must to pull this off.

You Will Need

  • How to make trousers. Cuffed Pants = Instant Chic - Step 1
    Step 1

    Measure, Press & Cut

    Put the pants on with shoes (heels!), then place a pin to mark the final cuffed length. This will be Line A on above photo. From A, measure to Line B, which is the width of your cuff. I made mine 3cm. Finally, add an extra 1.5cm to your cuff width and draw Line C (4.5cm from B in my case).

    Press all 3 lines, then cut along Line C. Keep the fabric remnant to make belt loops if you like.

    Step 3

    Stitch the Cuff into Place

    Turn up the cuff (my cuff was 3cm) and press. You shouldn’t be able to see the zigzag stitching. Straight stitch with the sewing machine back and forth a few times along the red line. Do this for both ends of the cuff.
