Default taylor snowboarding pants?

hey. i just ordered some new pants online and they're great.
only thing is they're way way too baggy for me. i dont mean
that i want them skinny jean tight but i do want them to fit
a little bit nicer. will taking them to a tailor ruin the
waterproofing in that area? ive read threads on how you can
flip the pants inside out, sew them up, and wear them like
normal but i havent read anything on the outcome of this.

in short: will tayloring or DIY stitching ruin the material's
waterproof-ness?

If you do it yourself they will lose some waterproofing. But when was the last time you saw someone get wet on the inside of their knees and inseam?

You may be able to take it to a proffesional taylor and they may be able to do it better and not effect the waterproofing but that costs money.

hahahaha that doesnt sound very promising. but yes you are right.
ive never done anything like this before, and if i have to trade
a lot of performance for a little bit more comfort then its not
worth it. how wet do they get?
