Brilliant!  I don't tend to have this problem, but it's a great fix for all those taller folks out there.

those look awesome! for a second i thought the thumbnail was the pair that you made... and they are awful.  Tongue but they look like a completely different pair of pants! it almost looks like you changed the overall fit so it's more flattering. wow. haha... i'm 5'1" so i won't be able to use this... but still, impressed.

Really love this idea, since I am a six footer myself.  Sometimes not even the "tall" jeans are long enough! Great transformation!

I love your idea for lengthening jeans with a cuff. I also have trouble finding jeans long enough at thrift stores, but I've never wanted to add length b/c I didn't want them to look funny with an extra seam at the bottom. Your a genius for thinking this up!

Ohmygosh yes! Taking the hem out of pants only gets you so many inches. Wonderful idea! I think I've pretty much got the gist of it, but would love a tutorial!
