|The view when you are walking dowstairs|
Well... maybe they didn't push me, but they were long enough to to cause me to trip and crash into our bottom of the stairs baby gate.
|The view from the floor.|
I'm short and love the clearance racks, which means I often come home with pants that are too long with plans to hem them up. I normally use the pinch hem (tutorial from Thinking In Shapes) method for jeans because you can't tell they've been hemmed at all.
But this particular pair of jeans had a wide flare, and I had to take a lot off the bottom. Pinching was not possible.
This time I just measured how much to take off, subtracted my hem amount, and marked roughly with chalk
I serged along that line, then turned it up twice and topstitched. I didn't even have to cut them!
A pinch hem would look better, though.
Does anyone know an easy way to shorten jeans with a wide flare but still keep the original hem? I'd love to know!
