Hemming Jeans

By Seamssewcreative
The other day I went through my closet and took out every pair of jeans that were too long. Holding a stack of 5 or 6 jeans, I realized I had been wearing one pair of jeans over and over because they were hemmed, and all of these others were sitting in my closet, only occasionally getting worn when I felt like donning a very high heel.

After letting the stack of jeans stare me in the face on my ironing board for about a week, I finally plucked up the muster to sit down and hem them all.
3 hours later, and I now have a bevy of jeans in my closet that fit me!

A while ago I learned a tip from a seamstress on how to hem jeans so it doesn't look like you had them hemmed. Since I have one pair of jeans left to hem (not mine though!) I'll post a tutorial on jean hemming so they look like this!

Yes, that is the finished hem after the jeans have been shortened :)
Happy sewing!
