Hemming Skinny Jeans

The plight of short people: pants are always too long, including petite sizes. Thankfully, I am now very comfortable on my sewing machine where hemming pants is fast and painless.

I couldn't resist and happily hopped on the bright colored jeans bandwagon. I picked up a fun pair of blue legging jeans from Gap. Instead of trying to keep the original hem, I decided to go the easy route and made a new hem. Ten minutes later... ta da! Grace-sized jeans!



I wanted to keep a little of the scrunching, so I left an extra few inches at the bottom.

Which one's the original hem and which one's the new hem?

Hey Grace,

I noticed that you use what looks like allot of flash photography when you take these pictures. It might be a good idea for some of the more color oriented pictures to take them during the day in a naturally lit room so that you don't have to use the flash. This can prevent a sort of washed out color look and make the natural colors pop.
