Are your jeans as sad looking as mine were? For some odd reason I bought these thinking a long fit great- not so. After I finally accepted that, I would roll them up- really cute I know. Then my poor little cuff started to give out. Time to hem. Today, I’m going to show you how to hem jeans. Surprisingly, it is easy and it looks great!
1. Decide how much shorter you want your jeans- I wanted to take off 2″. Cut that amount in half. Cuff your jeans and measure from the bottom to the original hem and pin in place. Make sure you measure all the way around so it stays even.
2. Sew around your cuff right next to the original hem edge. You might need to use a denim needle.
5. Finished- I LOVE having a “new” pair of jeans that fits perfect!! There you have it – that’s how to hem jeans. Happy Sewing:)
