DIY Hem Jeans Fast and Easy


There are times when your pair of jeans doesn’t seem exactly right anymore. Maybe it was the washing machine’s fault, maybe it was Mother Nature which made you grow taller in just a matter of years. Either way, if you plan on using them further on, there is a DIY solution at your disposal: hem them! We propose you the following solution to hem your jeans fast and easy right at home.

You will need:

• some pins;
• sewing needle and string;
• a sharp pair of scissors;
• an iron;

The steps are fairly easy and it only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish. So, the first thing you have to do is measure how much shorter you’d like the jeans to be. Take the pins and mark the pants in position. Then, roll up the legs of the jeans with the hem right above the mark. Pin this as well. Now sew just next to the original hem. Look at the photo for guideline. Next, you can remove the extra fabric of legs (which you would just as well tucked it inside), unroll the jeans and iron the ends. Congratulations!

    Jeans shrinking or people growing often means the are already to short , so hemming is going to make them fit….! Someone else.

      I agree. this video would be awesome for short people who can’t find the right sized jeans. it could also be helpful to moms who find good jeans for their kids that are right in the waist but are too long.
