Pants: Boot leg to straight leg

I don’t know about you, but I have several pairs of boot-cut pants that have accumulated over the years . Some of them I still like but wish they had a straight leg. I found 2 pairs to be altered. One khaki and one black. So I’m going to show you my quick & easy way to fix them.

First, turn the pants inside out and try them on.

I don’t take any measurements for this, I just take some straight pins and start at the knee and place the pins where I want them, working my way down one leg.

Take the pants back off and pin the other leg to match.

Now sew a straight seam where the pins are, removing the pins as you go.

Lastly, cut the excess fabric off. I used pinking shears to cut down on fraying but you don’t have to.

Press them and you’re ready to go.
