As you may know, I can’t sew a straight line. Very sad. This makes hemming pants a nightmare that I avoid like the plague. Until now! Last night I hemmed, not one, but two pair of jeans in a way that took about the time it would have taken me to throw up my hands in disgust the old way. The best part is this way I was able to preserve the original hem. Now not only are my jeans the right length, but I don’t have a lame dark hem (sorry Mom, it is lame.) It is such a forgiving way to sew that even I could get it right. Try it, I promise you will never hem jeans any other way.
