Shortening Jeans While Keeping The Original Hem

Finding that perfect pair of jeans is even harder when you’re short like me. (I’m 5’0″) The petite sections leave a lot to be desired, and not all jeans offer “short” sizing.

A few weeks ago, I found the PERFECT pair of jeans – They fit like a glove, looked great, and they were on sale! The only problem was that they were way too long for me.

I figured I could just roll them up, but honestly I hated the way they looked when rolled up. Just as I was about to return them, I came across this tutorial showing you a great way to hem jeans at Make-it and Love-it.

Since I can’t sew to save my life, I’m going to show this to my Grandmother and see if she can do it for me. People who’ve tried this says they’ve turned out great, and you can’t even tell that they’re hemmed!

Worst case scenario, I can just rip the stitches out if I don’t like the way they turn out. 🙂
