How to hem jeans with the original hem (magic hem)

Leave a comment

I’ve always been quite short, and growing up I always had to re-hem every new pair of trousers I got. Back then, I  simply cut off some of the length and made the hem from scratch. While I ended up with jeans of a more suitable length, I always felt that the clean, new hem didn’t match the rest of the look. If only I had known about the “magic hem”!

The instructions given in the video aren’t always clear so I recommend that you watch it closely to get a hang of what Mr. Hyi Lim is doing. I’ve seen a couple of other videos on the subject as well but those were forgetting one detail. That is to hide the seam allowance/left-over fabric inside the hem. If you follow the instructions in this video, you should end up with a neat looking result both on the outside and the inside.

I can’t wait to try this out. I almost feel like buying a pair of jeans in the wrong size, just for the sake of it!
