Step 2: Sew!
This is going to feel weird, but trust me! You will place your needle next to the original hem.
You will sew RIGHT NEXT to the original hem. Stitch on the RIGHT side of the hem (the farthest from the bottom of the jean).
Sew all the way around the cuff. Repeat on the other leg of the jean. If you have trouble sewing over the seam with your machine, try using a thicker needle.
I choose to use my hand and turn the wheel on the side of the machine manually when I go over the thick seams on the sides of the jeans.
Step 3: Turn the legs of the jean right side out.
Step 4: Press the jeans flat so they aren’t bulky or if you have hemmed a ton (like 5 inches or something) you can just cut off the excess portion.
They may fray when washed if you do cut them off. That’s why I just iron them really well on the bottom.
Believe me, nobody will be able to tell when you are wearing your jeans.
