How to unshrink cotton garments?

I mistakenly threw a pair of cotton PJ pants into the dryer and the legs are significantly shorter now. I tried soaking them in warm water with some conditioner and stretching them again, but they shrank back a few days later. Is there any way to permanently unshrink them? I love these pants, but the fact that they go halfway up my shin irritates me.

    You can't. Once cotton shrinks, there's no going back.

    Too late, give them to a shorty neighbor or Goodwill

    Put them on, then climb into your time machine set for the day you shrunk them, then don't shrink them...that's your only hope.
