Magic Hem Jeans

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm very proud that I did this type of hemming on jeans which preserved the original hem. Wished I had known about this technique before. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Angela Wolf's class was very helpful. Take your time and do it right. Get more jeans to practice.

Q&A with SweetJasmine

Scheri Manson asked:
Looks great.
SweetJasmine answered:
Thanks. Now I need to get more jeans to hem!
Kate Maeda asked:
was this shortening the pants? My problem is often that I buy the petite and then after a few washings they need lengthening, do you think this class would help me?
SweetJasmine answered:
This class teaches about hemming, shortening the pants.
Peggyan asked:
I am thinking about taking Angela Wolf's class. What I want to learn how to do is shorten a jacket sleeve when the sleeve has a button flap or placket--I don't know the correct term for this. Does Angela's class include this. Thanks for your help. Peggy.
SweetJasmine answered:
She has a 54 minute segment on shortening sleeves but it's a regular jacket sleeve. You can sign up for the class and try it withing 30 days get a refund if it doesn't suit your needs. Angela's also very good about answering people's questions. Maybe she can answer your question.
