Hem Jeans and Keep the Original Hem!

Today I was asked by Youngest (she's here visiting), to hem her new jeans, and I remembered a tutorial that I had seen on Pinterest.   Instead of attempting to make my own tutorial, I'm just sharing a link for Abby's!

The best tutorial I found was from Sew Much Ado
I am extremely happy with the results, and so is my daughter!  I plan on doing a pair of my own pants as soon as I post this!

  1. I'm so glad to know someone to actually try it! Was it pretty easy to do? I'm not the best with the sewing machine, do you think its beginner level?

  2. Cerina, It was pretty easy to do, just measure carefully. The sewing was a straight stitch, so that was easy. However, when I washed the jeans, they frayed a lot. In the future, I would probably add a zig-zag stitch along the cut edge. Juju
