i don’t think it’s laziness i think it’s called “if you don’t take the pants completely apart your ‘make do’ hem job is either going to be bulky or awkward, or it’s going to unravel.” depends on whether or not you chop off the old hem and how you stitch up the new one.
but maybe that’s just me, i am kind of a perfectionist when it comes to sewing.
i know delias offers inseams as short as 26" but i can’t vouch for their fit or quality since i’ve never tried them.posted over 8 years ago

I have a fairly average inseam (34") and it does seem like I had to cuff a pair of pants for the first time last year. It was strange. For me there are pants that I cuff instead of getting them tailored because I like to wear them with and without heels.I think some people just don’t want to pay to get their pants tailored though. posted over 8 years ago
it’s so hard to find a pair that fits just right. i always have to cut it shorter and it sucks if you’re buying an expensive pair and you’re chopping off a big chunk. i bought this pair of expensive skinny jeans and they fit perfectly except for the length.i had it cut…like 4" and the bottom part was not as fitted as i want it to be. if a tall girl would wear it then the portion i cut off would probably fall on her calves.posted about 8 years ago
