Sketch Bend Problem

I am converting my old drawings and CAD files into solidworks and on this sheet metal part I did a sketch bend.  The sketch bend is inaccurate, as in the real world if you were to bend this you would not get a "half rolled edge" past the actual flange because it would ouch the other side of the bend.  On the edge flange function you can adjust the length of the bend.  Is there something like that for sketch bend?  I guess I could adjust the sketch and remove the bottom portion and then do an edge flange but that would be a pain for a lot of our files.
