Hemming Jeans and Getting My Look Back in the Game.
After last week's rather dismal show on the dressing front I got back in the game today with some dark-wash jeans and a plum colored silky blouse with a waist tie and 3/4 sleeves.
Alas these jeans a too big ( yeh I know pooor me).. but really I don't want to buy more jeans but I am going to have to. My loss is going to be your gain because I am going to open these suckers up and see about taking them in and I am going to do a post about it in the coming weeks since I really do sort of crush on these jeans and would still like to wear them.
Do you know how to actually hem jeans?.. I am 5'6 but it seems my legs are on the shortish side so sometimes I have to hem my jeans.. a real pain, but you want them to look right and not "my mom hemmed these with a stapler sort of look" you need to know some tricks.
There are a couple schools of thought on hemming jeans -
The cheaters method - Easy jean hemming by Cardigan Empire
Pretty official method - Canadian Crafter's Jean hemming method
Pretty much professional - Sew for Dough hems jeans
So there you go.. pick your method and hem on my dears ( or grow longer legs, which ever is easier!)
