HOW TO HEM JEANS FOR BEGINNERS
There is nothing I hate more than having my jeans bunch at the bottom. Ok, there are a few things I hate more like spiders and vegetables. Being 5’4″, I often have to hem my jeans, but there’s one problem…I can’t sew. Why didn’t I pay attention to my mom when she tried to teach me to sew?! Why?! I still want to sew, but I have no ambition to actually learn. I’m hoping one day I’ll wake up and magically know how. Ha! But until that day, I figured out a couple super duper easy ways to hem my jeans myself so I don’t have to always ask my mom. Although, my mom still does the more difficult alterations on clothes for me because she’s the best mom ever!

    2. The Cut: This one is pretty self explanatory. Just lay the jeans flat on a hard surface and cut the bottom of your jeans to your desired length. Make sure you draw a line where you want to cut them so you don’t cut them too short. Remember, you can always cut more off, but you can’t add it back once it’s been cut.
