I’ve gotten really good at hemming jeans. My friend/client has two boys. One is short, so his jeans are always too long. The other is tall, so his jeans are often purchased longer and need to be hemmed as well. We’ve been at this for a while now and she’s got the fitting technique down to a science. From day one, I asked her to have her boys try on the jeans inside out. That’s right – inside out. It’s an easy way for her to mark the length. And one less step for me in the hemming process. For demonstration purposes, here’s a picture using a pair of hubby’s jeans.
Enjoy and happy sewing!
