- A seam ripper
- Twill tape, grosgrain ribbon or bias tape
So instead, cut a piece of bias tape, grosgrain ribbon, or in this case I used 5/8″ twill tape twice the width of your pants leg plus 1 inch. Sew this into a loop, using the extra 1″ to make 1/2″ seam allowance. Then stitch it right sides together around the bottom of you pant leg, using the smallest seam allowance you can. In this case I used 1/4″.
