adding decorative trim to pants
Hi everyone! I am very short and have a pair of black pants that are technically capris but come to just about my ankle and I would like them to be a couple of inches longer to be regular pants for me. Is there an easy way to add a trim to the pants so that they will look good? Originally I was going to hem them further and make them capris but now that the weather is getting cooler I would love to wear them now. There is about another inch folded up for the original hem that I could take out. Do you recommend doing knitted lacework or a crocheted trim or sewing a lace edging on it or will it look bad no matter what? How would I attach it, just sew or handstitch? Thanks for any ideas!
