    I am making size 12-18 M . I Need to shorten the pants by 1 1/2″.
    Would it be best to just take up a bigger hem. Or would it be better to shorten bottom front and back pieces somewhere in the middle, making them shorter to begin with? Does it matter?

    I’ve done this in the smaller sizes. Someone on here advised me that it would probably be better to take some of the length off of each piece. What I ended up doing was to trace each piece with the width of the size I wanted, but the length of one size down. That worked out pretty well.
