So I hate hemming men's dress pants with a cuff.

In measuring the pants for hemming and cuffing I cut a bit too short for a proper 1 1/2 cuff. From here I can do one of two things:
1. Hem without cuff and call it a day.
2. Sew the cut fabric to the pants and make a cuff to try and cover my goof.
Which would you do, or suggest?  Huh

Can you find a matching color (wide) ribbon to sew at the end to make up for the length? Then you can sew the ribbon to the bottom, and the ribbon part can be hidden on the inside of the leg.
