Best answer: How do you tighten your pants without sewing your ankles?

How can I make my jeans legs tighter?

Take the jeans off, flatten them so that the seams are on the outer edges and pin each leg closed along the line you have drawn. Put the jeans back on to check the fit. If they are too tight, adjust the pins. Cut along the pin line once you get the pins set where you want them.

What type of pants are tight around the ankle?

Most jeans that are tight at the ankles are skinny jeans, so they are fairly tight fitting all over. But “skinny” actually refers to the leg opening, which is quite narrow. If you crave the peg-leg look, several cuts of jeans sport narrow leg openings; most of these fall within the different styles of skinny jeans.

How can I make my sweatpants tighter without sewing?

Place the sweatpants in the dryer and add a fabric softener sheet. Dry them over the hottest setting available. Once you remove them from the dryer, you’ll see that they’re a full size smaller. You can repeat this process if you need to make them even smaller.

How can I shorten my pants without cutting or sewing?

If you don’t have a sewing machine or needle and thread, you can hem your pants with hem tape, which you can find at most drugstores. To use hem tape, turn your pants inside out, fold them to the desired length, pin and iron the crease, and then apply the hem tape to the fold. Iron over the folded edge.
