I hem all my jeans myself (I'm obviously not lizm75...). But I've never taken a pair of jeans to get hemmed lengthwise proffesionally. I'm scared they'd hem it the regular way. I got my sewing machine working about 2 weeks ago (not exactly sure why it wasn't working, probably the way I threaded the bobbin), and I've hemmed so many jeans. I don't even want to see another pair of jeans that needs to be hemmed. (But I only hemmed my TRS, and like 2 pairs of sevens)

I personally use a regualr sewing machine. Nothing fancy. I use the brand brother. I've had it for about a year and a half, 2 years.

Oh yeah, watnxt, you did a good job!

You did a fantastic job with your Lilys! How long did it take you? Is it harder to work with flares than bootcuts? Sorry for all the questions; I still haven't mastered hemming my own jeans yet.

Sure, send em my way, lol. I just use a regular machine, actually a cheap ol singer, lol. Wish I had a surger would make it so much easier. I used a stitch kinda like a zig zag but had an edge to it for the finishing the inside. I have a cutting wheel so used that to cut right along the stitching after sewing. I would say it took me, 30 mins or less from start of marking to finish. Not exactly sure. Not sure about the flares yet. I would think it depended on how much you had to take off. I did it after reading the glueing method and went from there. The difference from my first attempt and second and then final is how close I sewed to the origional stitching. Seems to make all the difference. I am still obsessing about it, wondering if I could have done better. UUUUUUUUGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!! OCD!!!!

One good thing about the sewing. Its all sewed before you cut. So if you don't like it take it out, then no harm done!!

I have to tell they lady who does my alterations about this type of hem! It looks awesome. So much better then the alternative of just cutting them and hemming them!
post #42 of 59
They look fabulous.

What colour thread did you use? Navy blue?
post #43 of 59
They look great!!! If I need hemming done I'll drop you a PM. At least we're within driving distance LOL
