Today, my hand making activities would be shortening my new jeans, I actually do this almost every time I purchased new jeans, either I am too short or the jeans is just too long J(for me). Defending myself, I am 160cm Asian, normal size for a girl in my opinion. To fix it, I usually wear it first then bend the end part of the jeans leg to the length that I want. Walk around like a fashion lady to see if it looks and wear just fine, adjust it if I need too, when everything looks fine, I took off the jeans as how it is. After that I add up around 3 to 4 cm from the bend line, this add up would be use as a base that I would flip in again and sew. After laying out the jeans in the wide space with two legs on top of each other, I cut off the left over. Divide the add ups in two and flip in, tuck in needle with head to secure it, all over in circle.
And we are half way, Am I lazy? I normally would stop for snack or drink, a quick rest and coming back to my work would sometimes help me find out bits of mistakes or maybe some adjustment to make. Let’s start sewing than, just sew around the circle after securing it with needle head. And you will have (I will have) a perfect length of jeans.
