Turning the Loes Hinse Design Oxford pant pattern into cropped pants with a narrower leg

By Sharon Lyon
on June 25, 2013

To make new length, cut off 7 1/2" to shorten. (Or use your preferred length.) Don't make them too short!

On the outside seam at the new bottom cut line, draw a new cut line 1 3/8" inside the original cut line. Taper up to just above the knee.

On the inside seam, draw a new cut line 1 1/2" inside the original cut line starting and tapering as done on the outside of leg.

To make sure the the hem area lays flat, the underside of the hem needs to be as wide as the right side of hem.  

This makes a great warm weather pant!
