Hem your jeans tutorial

If you have a pair of jeans that is too long, but you are hesitant to hem them because you want the seam to look the same as when you bought it, here is the tutorial for you... You retain your origianl hemline, so it still has the stonewashed/acidwashed/waterever-is-in-style-at-the-time-washed look.

I haven't actually used it yet, as most jeans are too short on me, but I may order some tall sizes and see if this works. I have a long torso, and getting pants to fit is a nightmare!

This method is really clever! :)
However, the way I'm reading it, will the hem part of the jean flip up like a cotton t-shirt does at times? Or will it always lay flat?

Carla it will not flip. I have been doing this for a long time and it works. Used to do it with the boys jeans.

Cool. I am going to bring Mom my pants that are too long for me. :) What happened to your Christmas posts?

My little SweetiePie just had some jeans hemmed professionally and that's the way they did it -- very cool. Love the cool little snowman swap package you sent out too!
