And the last two pairs I'm too scared to try on, thinking they might be too small and fearing I've gained a few pounds. Instead of trying on the jeans, I went shopping instead -- logical thinking, right? After rummaging through the clearance sections, I didn't find any pair of jeans I liked but I found a pair of nice dress pants and pair of men's drawstring khaki pants.
The men's drawstrings khaki pants were too long, too big, and too baggy on me. No problem. Fixing the baggy issue was very simple -- I sewed a new inseam. Normally, I slim down jeans or pants by sewing new side seams but the crotch area was really low. The new inseam solved the baggy problem AND the low crotch area! Yay! A new hem to fit my short length was a piece of cake.
