My brother gave me a pair of really nice linen pants because they shrank on him a bit and were too short. I had to have them hemmed another 2 inches because I have really short legs. When I took them to the tailor, she pinned them in several places on me. She ended up hemming them and taking in the seat quite a bit. I love the fit now, it is almost perfect except the legs are still too wide I think. I want them to fit slimmer.

Right now, they are straight legged and I want to keep them that way. Is it possible to have the legs made slimmer all the way down?
