    How to Hem Jeans and Keep the Original Hem--EASY tutorial

    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!

    Easiest, most amazing way to hem your jeans while keeping the factory seam! May look odd close up, but when they're on--you can't tell AT ALL! Works best on thick demin (L.A. Idols turned out great); ok on very stretchy jeans (Lee). Be sure to sew RIGHT along the factory seam. You won't be able to see the thread after hemming. This is the best of all hemming tutorials I've seen on Pinterest.
