ALTERING THE RISE

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
When we have a rise thats too long, to deep, too high, what ever
you wish to call it, its a major alteration.
The waist band is removed along with the lining and thr belt loops.
As much as one inch can be cut off the top pof the trouser.
Cutting off more than that would interfere with the side pockets.
Then the waist is reconstructed . the dotted line at the top is where
the waist band is sewn back on.

One inch difference in the rise is a large amount.
Manufactures trouser rises change 1/2" between short and regular
and also between regular and long.

When the rise is too short and needs to be lengthened, the work
is done at fork. see the dotted line at the bottom of the rise thats
the new sewing line. The excess cloth is then cut away.

Thanks for these, Alex! I've added it to the Technical Tutorial's thread with the others.

Would this work for jeans as well? I have a pair that has a low rise (creating a baggy look) and would like to fix it.

shortening a jean from the top can be done BUT!
this will cut into the front pockets so you cant use them.
the best way would be to raise the jean up to your waist.
then have the tailor make the waist to fit your waist.so that
it will not slide back down.
