Hi, I don't suppose anyone has had any experience with shortening any soft shell trousers? I'm unsure of how the stitching would survive with the stretchy fabric and obviously I don't want to ruin any trousers by lopping the ends off and having a failed attempt!

I'm not even 5ft tall so buying trousers is a pain!

As long as it doesn't have a snow gaiter, you should be able to just cut, hem and stitch. The trouser leg doesn't stretch much at the ankle.

Use a stretch stitch pattern like a serger/overlocker and you can even get stretchy thread.
