I have a pair of eBay pants from Gap which I once slimmed the legs of considerably. I then had to take in the waist and seat when I lost some weight. Despite their being one of my go-to pairs of pants, I just recently noticed (after several years of owning them) that they were entirely too short, even too short for a no break pant. So I made them into shorts. I opted for a...(racy? inappropriate?)...vintage length.
