If you’ve ever hemmed your jeans with a stapler (and you know who you are :) ) then this tutorial is for you!
The only problem………Whah…..Whah…..Whah…..
Too long. :(
I want to keep all that nice white stitching, so instead of using staples, like I usually do (oops, did I say that out loud?) let’s do it the right way.
First, pin where you’d like the jeans to fall.
Next, measure from the top of the existing hem to the fold.
Cut that measurement in half, turn up the hem, measure the half distance and pin.
Using a zipper foot, stitch as close to the existing hem as possible.
Fold back and press with a steam iron.
And now you have just the right length with the original white stitching showing on the hem.
