post #1 of 24

Okay, I am about to attempt to pin my Joey Big T's for glue hemming. Anyone got any pointers? I almost stressed myself out on the R&R Roths!!!!

hem it yourself, its easy to hem keeping the original hem and all that without any cutting

I don't think it can be done this way. They will have to be cut and lined up.
Personally I am not that hung up about original hems anyway to make a huge fuss over it, though I know some people are. IMO they will need to be cut, and in addition, depending on how much you are taking up, the side seam will need to be opened & adjusted for width.

Okay, here is the thread where the joey hems were glued (it was on page 18 in the seven section...)

She said she didn't, but I don't know how she didn't. . .

Why don't you try to hem them by hand? it'd be easier to undone than the glue.
Here are some pics of my DHV A...I've done it to my BigT Joey and Bobby too.
I'm not sure if you can see it clear, but the technique is the same as Jenny's

I think mine is about to stop working too. Cheap machine can't handle thick denim too much

BTW, if you use sewing machine ..., to help prevent skipped stitches as the presser foot goes up and over the seam hump, pound the seams beforehand with a hammer to help flatten the layers. Or you can use this nifty tool.....Jean-A-Ma-Jig

Ohh..the kind where you have to literally 'pump' it with your foot? Singers are good quality machine.

post #22 of 24
Yup, the pump kind. I love it. It is my baby

how do you use the jean a mag jig???
post #24 of 24
I got my machine fixed!! And I hemmed a pair of Joeys. But i have to take the hem out, because I haven't washed hem yet (they're NWT), and one leg is slightly longer than the other one... (but it's less than a quarter of an inch, but you wouldn't know unless I pointed it out.)
