Determine the correct length. Fold the excess length of the pant cuffs toward the inside of the pant leg and pin the pants to the appropriate length. When measuring, it is important to take into consideration the kind of shoes that will be worn with the pants. The jeans illustrated here are fitted for use with high heel shoes, and they will probably be too long to be used with sneakers or tennis shoes. If you measure with tennis shoes, the pants will be too short with high heel shoes. Body posture also affects the measurements. Make sure that the person is facing straight and not looking down when the measurement is taken. Pin the pant cuffs at the proper length or mark the pants with a small mark of taylor’s chalk. If you are pinning your own pants make sure you are looking in a long length mirror side on (with-out twisting your body).

Note: Before sending please replace pin or taylors chalk with a safety pin as this will stay put.

Proper Dress Hem Lengths

Knowing proper dress hem lengths to flatter your appearance guarantees that you will always look good. The proper dress hem length can vary.

Micro Mini

When you put a regular miniskirt on a 5′ 11″ fashion model, it looks a lot shorter than it does on an average person. When an average height girl wants that “fashion model” look, she buys a micro-mini. Its really not much shorter.

Miniskirt

Miniskirts cover a little more skin that micro miniskirts. This means they can also be worn in more settings. They’re a little more forgiving in the body department, but still require some slim curves to wear. In addition to a hot date, a miniskirt is fine to wear for a day of shopping or lunch with friends.

Knee Length Skirt

Knee length skirts are the all-around most versatile length for a hem. It doesn’t matter if the skirt rises a little above the knee ora little below, as it all looks good. The length isn’t too long, which would make it seem too formal, and isn’t too short, making it seem too casual. Knee-length skirts also tend to look good on any body type. That perfect knee length can work at a formal reception, at a hip club, at a serious business meeting or a casual dinner party.

Mid-Calf Length

Mid-Calf length skirts work for all occasions, whether formal or casual. The length is a perfect mix of knee length and floor length skirts. The hem is short enough to easily wear in winter conditions, but long enough to help keep you warm. The only drawback to this hem length is that it tends to make big calves look even bigger.

Floor Length

An ankle or floor length skirt may be a subtle style, but it still has its own sex appeal. The length works for any body type. Ankle and floor length skirts are fantastic for wearing to work or to play.
