So- now to the how to. Start with a pair of jeans that are too long. See above. Technically these jeans are a great straight leg length, but I’m not into them. They needed some work. So I start by rolling the pant leg up to the longest possible desired length. Then made a tiny snip where I wanted to start cutting.
Take off your pants and unroll the pant leg. Find that tiny hole. Proceed to cut straight across the pant leg.
