Hemming pants

I got my husband a used suit on eBay the jacket fits, the waist fits, but the previous owner was about 3 inches taller.

I folded the hems up and pinned them in place.

Then I hand stitched the hems.

I didn’t create a new cuff because he didn’t care for it.  Now when I turn the pants right side out and iron them he shouldn’t be stepping on the excess. We have a banquet coming up, while it is a casual event it will be nice to see him in something a bit dressier than jeans and a button up shirt.
