Now, it’s time to do some math (I promise it’s easy, though!). You’re going to divide how much extra width to take out of your pants by 4. As you recall, my number was 4″, so 4/4 is 1, meaning that the new seam is going to start 1″away from the old seam. Smooth out one side of your pant leg (you can use an iron if you need to) and mark 1″ away from the side seam at the very bottom of the pants. I used tailor’s chalk for my mark, since it comes out easy.
