Hi, I've been given 2 pair of JJill pants, but they're just a little too short. I have a friend w/ a sewing machine , which I think she can use pretty well. The pants are such good quality, I would hate to waste them. Do you think she could hem them up into capri's pretty easily?? What do you think??

Sure. All you need to do is press the hems up to the height you want; if she sews, she'll know to tuck the hem under to avoid raw edges, and then it's just a seam for each leg. Not hard at all!

Oh man, what a great idea! I have two pairs of pants which are too short & I was just gonna lengthen them. I've also been thinking, "Summer's coming - I'd like to buy some capris, or at least a capri pattern." Thanks for the new plan!

I did this with a couple of pairs of DD's pants she outgrew length-wise but they still fit otherwise. Super easy to do and it doesn't take very long at all to do. Plus you can customize them with trim and whatnot -- I finished off one pair with some lace and the other pair I put on some rick-rack and an iron-on applique.
