Erm, if you shorten a pair of bootcut jeans, they will have less of a bootcut, for obvious reasons (unless you can defy physics or you have one wierd ass looking pair of jeans to begin with). An inch and a half is nothing, in any case. I wouldn't worry about it. If the jeans are the rigid wash, however, I would make sure to wash the jeans at the hottest temperature you plan to wash them at, so that you don't end up with a pair of high waters a few months in the future.
