I found this fun and EASY way to hem levi's this summer at a family retreat. I actually just overheard this way of hemming jeans, so I may do it a little different....and that is okay.
Step 1. Measure - figure out where you want your jeans to fall. You'll figure out how to measure once you read the whole tutorial.
Step 2: Sew - now sew along the folded edge....just like the picture below.
Step 3 - hey, do the other leg too...
Step 4 - this is how the inside of your pants should look. YES, you could use matching thread, but I thought you might want to see the thread....also I am too lazy to change the bobbin thread.
Step 5- Now, place the fold on the inside of the pant leg, so you can see the original hemmed pant leg.
Step 6 - tack the fold down. I sewed along the seam edge just to the top of the fold. Please, secure your stitches.
You are done! Sew easy (ha ha ha). Seriously, I like this method because there is no cutting, nothing permanent, and it can be done in about 5 minutes. That is my kind of project. Happy Sewing.
