Long Pants to Shorts

I wish pattern companies would make separate pieces for turning pants into shorts.  Maybe I want to make shorts the first time and long pants the next.  If I make the shorts first then I have to figure out the length for the pants and vice versa.  Who wants to go through all that, I don’t.  I definitely don’t want to buy the same pattern again.

I’m using McCalls M6933.

So, I figured an easier way would be to fold the pattern piece to the length indicated on the pattern and pin it.
