What kind of tape measure do I need?

Tape Measure

It is important to have an accurate tape measure. Tape measures stretch out of shape and become distorted with wear. Lay your tape measure on a ruler to check for accuracy. Replace it as needed. Avoid rolling up your tape measure, this will stretch and twist it out of shape.

I am trying to alter my slacks (ladies). I want to lower the crotch so that I can raise them up at the waist. Do you know of any websight that might explain how to do this?
Any suggestions will be really appreciated.
Thanking you in advance,
