This was my first attempt at finishing the bottoms of the cutoffs. I decided to cut off the cuffs of the pants and simply reattach them at the cutoff point. I have heard of people doing this when they hem jeans, and I thought it was a great idea. I was lucky with these pants because the width of the leg opening was similar in size to the width of the opening at my cutoff point. I had to make some adjustments, but not much. I think that the key with finishing cutoffs this way is adjusting your seams so that they line up properly. My pants were slim fit and I didn't have to do much adjustment at all, Clark's however were a bit more of a challenge. I had to line up the outside seam and then cut off some of the extra fabric for the inner seam. All in all I am rather pleased with my salvaging job.
The great thing about finishing your cutoffs this way is that is rather inconspicuous. If you look closely you can see where the cuff is attached right above the hem of the pant, but it isn't that noticeable. I no longer feel uncomfortable when a neighbor catches me in our yard in my cutoff jeans.
