How do I shorten athletic jogging pants?

I bought a pair of Under Amour Jogging Pants at Lady Footlocker. I thought I could just roll them up, but they are just too long. How do I shorten them? Is it better to hem them or cut them first?

  • I have to shorten all my pants but I didn't want to cut mine so I just ran elastic through the hem.

  • Pin them two where you want them. They cut off the extra. Fold them up so that the cut part is on the inside of the fold and then sew them up.

  • because they are knit material, if you sew them by hand or machine, you'll need to keep the fabric stretched out while you sew or the stitching will just rip out when it's stretched.

  • Cut & hem. Or have a pro do it, like at a dry cleaners.
