Basic Tailoring Tips : Tailoring Tips: Letting Out Pant Seams


I’ve marked both my pant legs at the same
exact distance. And now what I’ve done is I had a hem, the original hem. But I can’t
just sew over that because you’ll know that it’s been tailored. So I undid the hem. I
just, I started undoing the seams, and just letting it out. But I only let it out as much
as I needed to from here to here so I could still sew that. So I don’t have so much work.
I can just flip it back up at the end. So I’m going to undo this other half the same
distance as the front and just seam ripping here. Because we don’t want to go over. We
don’t want it to look like we’ve tailored these pants. We want to put everything back
to where it was. And after you sew a side seam what you’re going to do is hem the pant
in the final step so we want to get it to final where we can re-hem or just re-go over
this back part. So a lot of you use seam rippers. I like the scissors. This just works for me.
You can decide what you want. This is a nice sharp nose on this scissor. Okay so I’ve done
that on this side as well. I’ve undone the hem enough so I can get into there. And then
I’m just going to throw a final pin and then one more. And now I can stitch.
