Repinning this "how to" on hemming jeans so the original hem shows. I tried this and it works GREAT! Two tips for the novice tailor or seamstress: (1) right before you sew the "cuff" in place, remove all pins except the ones holding the cuff in place; and (2) do the length exercise for the first leg only - you can measure the cuff once you have it pinned/sewed for the other leg. Easy!
