|(I found this image when I googled "girls who need to hem their pants" haha)|
So after hemming some pants this week I decided to make a simple tutorial of how to hem your pants.
heavy duty thread (if you don't have that normal thread will work)
1. Measure your pants
I usually measure my desire inseam (in this example it is 24") and then add an inch and mark the length with tailor's chalk. (in this example I am measuring 25") The extra inch is necessary so when you fold the fabric up the finished hem is at your desired length.
|inseam marked at 25"|
|in this example it is 2"|
|I marked 2" above on both pant legs|
4. Sew your pants
|I wrap my pant leg around the end of my sewing machine, and I use my presser foot as guide for an even stitch.|
|this just helps your hem lie flat|
