    Smile Great tute for hemming jeans the easy way

    I must admit I hate hemming jeans or DH's pants but, thanks to a friend who shared this with me, now it appears simple to do. I hope someone gets some inspiration to hem those pants dragging on the floor .

    Cool. What a good idea!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Now that is ingenious!! I sent the link to all of my short sisters and my petite daughter in law.

    This does work great. I don't remember where I saw this, maybe Angela Wolf on It's Sew Simple, but I've done a bunch of jeans this way.

    That would probably work on straight- legged jeans.

    Tapered, boot- cut, or flared jeans have varying circumferences at various points on the legs, so I would hesitate to try that method on them.

    I did not see any finish for the raw edges. I would prefer some sort of additional finish to prevent fraying.

    This is how I always hem mine-I'm short so I am always having to do this. Even on flared jeans because I always buy them with a little stretch so it's easy enough to ease the larger part in.

    Thank you so much....I bought a bunch of jeans cheap (we are just into our second day of autumn but it is as hot as hades here) I really need to get the hemming done and I hate wrestling with denim the usual way.

    Oh also, the hem on mine isn't usually big enough to even cut the extra off. I buy the short size and it's still just a few inches too long. So my fold is maybe a inch. I have tacked it on the sides to keep it from flipping down.

    Still seems like a lazy, half-%%% way of doing things to me.

    But if it works, why should I carr?
