Hemming jeans...(see Dissociate's thread)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I figure I'd start a new thread....

Dissociated mentioned using fabric glue, which I have yet to try it myself.
But if you're pressed with time, you can also use a double-sided tape. It costs $2-3 per 10 yrd ( I think)...enough to hem 2-3 pairs of jeans tmeporarily. The tape usually comes off when you wash your jeans.

OR.......hand hem your jeans, no sewing machine needed. Just a good iron to press them at the end.
I just did my DHV A last night.

Slipstich (hidden stitch) on the outer...



On the inside (wrongside)...just regular stitching.

I forgot to add....DO NOT use this thing called "Stich Witchery", also called something else. It's an iron-on hem. It works great unless if you decide that you want to undo the hem later on....it's pure hell to remove the adhesive.

ugh, i HATE when people do that and will usually pass on the purchase if I see that was done. (The only nice thing about the "skinny" trend is I see much less of that going on now...in fact I see more secondhand pairs altered to make them skinnies, which is slightly less objectionable) To repair it, depending on how much the fabric has frayed, maybe you could simply use an iron-on patch on the inside, cut away any frays, and maybe reinforce with a couple stitches of clear thread...now if it's frayed enough that there's now a gap in the fabric, you may need to add a little bit of a patch on the inside in a similar color. The visibility of the repair will depend on if they slit the inner or outer seams, how worn the cut spots are, etc...
