If you happen to be a short and robust individual such as myself, then you will probably believe me when i say that it is impossible to find pants that really really fit. This leaves you in the awkward position of hemming your own pants. In some cases, this is perfectly acceptable and frankly no one is the wiser.
Jeans, however, are a special challenge. You paid good money for all that distressing and stonewashing! A homemade hem just looks stupid!
Luckily I have finally had a major revelation. You don't want to do a hem, you want to do a seam between the original hem and the leg. I swear it didn't take much more time, and the results are infinitely better.
