I have a few pairs of jeans that are too long but I don't love the look of homemade hems so I just kept them long and walked all over them. Classy, I know. Then my husband came and asked me to hem some of his jeans so I did a little research and found this awesome tutorial. You can't even tell your pants are hemmed. It's almost magical. Okay, maybe not magical, but I feel like a whole world of possibilities (involving buying jeans on sale, even if they have a super-model 34" inseam) has been opened to me. This will change your life.
Here is a picture of my husband's jeans after I took about two inches off the bottom. Not too shabby, eh?
