It is school season again and many students are preparing for their first week of school with new clothes. Maybe you took them out shopping during tax free weekend and knowing how fast kids grow bought a pair of nice jeans. Only to come home and realize that the pants were on sale for a good reason, they are way to long! This is all hypothetical of course. (Smiles) If you need to hem pants (Like I do.) This is an easy and fast tutorial to hem any pair of pants. It is not the traditional way, but if you are like me you would rather make a bag before hemming a new pair of pants.
So here we go....
Step 1: Roll your pants, in this case jeans, to the correct height, pin in place or use close pins.
Step 2: Iron the two pant legs at the correct height. This will give you a crease line.
Step 3: Measure 1.5” down from the crease line. Cut the excess pant fabric off.
Step 4: Flip the pants wrong-side-out and fold .75” up, press with your iron.
Step 5: Fold again .75”, this should be where the first crease line is located, pin in place.
Step 6: Sew around the pant leg.
You are Done! Wow that was fast! Perfect hem every time! Very quick and easy!
