Leather trouser alterations

Hi, hoping any seamstresses/tailors on here can kindly advise...

I bought a lovely pair of Theory cropped, real leather, kick flare trousers from eBay. They arrived today and unfortunately the size turns out to be too big, all over. I need to have them shortened which isn't a problem but the waist, bum, crotch and thighs/legs also needs to be taken in/altered. I would say it is akin to a generous UK size 10. I'm between a UK size 6-8.

Is such an alteration possible?

Possible but expensive and ill-advised. Especially with leather, they basically need completely remaking. Return them and get the right size.

Thank you @zurala. I was hoping this wasn't the case but wishful thinking. I'll have to try and flog them.

Sorry 🙂 it's just too big a job.
