Although I searched under various possible titles for a thread on this topic, I found nothing. There is a DVD in the Russian language of about 41 seconds which is too cryptic and abbreviated to answer my question. The cotton with 1 or 2 % stretch material made in Italy is very thin and my trousers purchased in UK by Internet uncuffed. I intended to visit a special shop where I have already bought bands, but on this occasion will specify that their width be narrower than those sold me vy the new salesgirl who has taken over and seems not to have any experience in shortening trousers - otherwise the broad width is a riddle. Controversy has arose in regard to technique of adhering the band to the trousers - the English lady at the shop of origin advised me to use Wonderweb, some sort of glue which melts, but the Swiss haute couture fashion designer never heard of this and advised me to get the bands sewn. Another controversy is if the thread connecting the inside folded cloth to the outside truser leg should be done by hand or maschine? Is there reason for me to change my plan from uncuffed casual trousers,which I chose for sake of simplicity?
