losing another 2 vertical inches.

tonight during my workout, i was thinking about how to make cuffs when (the alternative version of) this song came into my head:

Do your ears hang low? Do they wobble to and fro? Can you tie them in a knot? Can you tie them in a bow? Can you throw them o'er your shoulder like a continental soldier? Do your ears hang low?
it's obvious to me now that a low-hanging crotch is totally unacceptable & i must rip the pants apart, redraw the pattern & lose another 2 vertical inches at the top.

the repurposed zipper will not survive & the pants might not survive, but at least they won't be hanging low.
