    I can't find any good looking tutus on line but it really quite simple....
    Masure the leangth of the inseam,out seam and how much you need to take off.
    Seam rip the origional hem.Press.Cut of the uneeded portion.Hem as normal,turn up cuff and press.Hand stitch an tack/anchor to each seam to keep cuff turned.Done.

    If you have blind hem on your machine, try to use that. I remember hemming my cuffed pants and it made it way easier.

    Don't hem the pants from the bottom, hem inside the cuff (assuming you'll always wear them cuffed). Hard to explain in words, but turn pants inside out, go up about 1/2 inch from the pressed edge of the cuff, take up as much as you need to shorten, pin and press, and then sew. Depending on how much you took up, you may need to hand sew the loop/tube you made to the seams so it doesn't flop down and show underneath the cuff. Ugh, I am so bad at describing this!

    Do you mean that your stitching a ditch behind the cuff? Thats good for cottons etc
    But if it has any stretch or is cordoroy,denim or any heavy fabric at all it will be too heavy at the bottom and sag.
