Don't waste money on a tailor when you can hem your jeans yourself.
Step 1: Determine length
Put on the jeans with the shoes that you will usually wear with them. Cuff the pants to the desired length and then mark the length with chalk or a pin.
Have a friend assist you. They can cuff the pants, provide feedback on the length, and mark the desired length for you.
Step 2: Measure length of cuff
Remove the jeans, measure the length of the cuff, and divide the measurement in half.
Ignore the original hem when doing your measurements. You are going to keep the original hem and hide the extra length inside the pant leg.
Step 3: Sew new cuff
Pin the cuff at the new length and sew it in place. Sew as close to the original hem as possible. You now have a small fold of extra denim inside your jeans.
Step 4: Verify length
Verify the new length by trying on the jeans in front of the mirror. If the length is off, mark a new length with chalk or pins so that you can make adjustments.
Step 5: Turn jeans inside out
Turn the jeans inside out and press the extra flap of denim upward, toward the waistline.
Step 6: Tack fold
Tack the extra fold in place by sewing a few stitches at each side seam.
If there is now too much fabric inside your pant leg for comfort, trim the extra material, cutting close to your new hem.
Step 7: Turn and press
Turn the jeans right side out, put them on, and don't worry about tripping on the extra length.
Did You Know?
Levi Strauss' original plan was to sell tents and wagon covers to people moving to California for the gold rush. Since there was no market for these, he instead manufactured durable pants for the miners.
@usaeagleawards BLAHAHA My country runs to your country for help? You really are fucking oblivious to the real fact that your country is becoming more of a joke every day! Newsflash your economy is shit you're in trillions of dollars of debt, you just got bailed out by china ffs. My country isn't in debt, and we don't have major poverty crisis like you. Go back to trying to repay your home loan from living in your car. oh and btw I welcome your fucking challenge to break my face
@usaeagleawards Love how instead of you taking my comment as a geniune statement you immediately judged it as being racist. Who's really racist in this situation? Freud would say you. You're an American mate, you're the definition of ignorance. Oh and in the case you're confused now, that was intended to be racist. Idiot.
@jerthebear76 fucking dipshit, my point is, if you have cut the hem off because the jeans are too long, this video doesnt help shit, doesnt matter if you want 3/4 pants, shorts, or if the old hem if fucked up and worn so you cut it off. The vid doesnt show you how to make a hem on jeans
I don't get why people want to keep the extra fabric inside. I mean, it makes sense if you are doing this for a child who might grow taller but I mean...I'm 21 and I'm pretty sure I am done growing taller. :) So I always just cut my extra fabric off and zigzag my raw edges. Wish I had a serger....!
