Need to shorten your jeans' hem but not sure how to pin them? Check out the video below.
Alternatively, you can bring in a sample pair of jeans that is similar and fits great. We can measure the inseam and use that measurement.
This will help us figure out how much needs to be shortened.
Then we mark it with chalk. Mark the fold over amount.
Mark the other side.
Cut at the bottom line.
Fold on the mark, press, and fold again. Use clips to hold in place.
A wooden clapper and steam iron help to make a nice crisp fold.
We have an array of thread colors. We can't always find a perfect match, but we'll use the best matching color.
Sew all around.
The sides can be a little tricky when you have thick jeans. But you can use a jumper (also known as a jean-a-majig) to help sew over those thicker areas.
Thanks for reading our blog and taking a look behind the scenes!
