I've taken some pictures below. I can do a tutorial if you wish.
It is super easy - after doing this hem - I realize there is a tutorial in Sew Stylish, I think the Spring 2009 issue - but here's a quick explanation (and I have two more pairs to hem so I will potentially post a tutorial (that would be a third or later post)):
Have a third party, in this case, J., mark your hems when you are wearing the shoes you want.
Then, measure that distance between the fold and the original hem (least amount of distance - or in other words, the inner part of the original hem). Cut the jeans (scary) using the distance you measured.
Then re-attach the hem as you would using a double-bias tape. It's fairly easy - because these jeans were bell-bottoms - you can see I had to take some fabric out of the original and the inner hem does not match up (these jeans had godets). I'm still very happy with this because I can control the length and I still think I do a better job on these jeans than the Nordstrom seamstresses.
Next time I'll do better.
Here we're watching the 'Bama game cause if Bama wins - then my brother Todd is coming to the BCS National Championship at the Rose Bowl in January. So, they did win and he is coming - we have tickets!!
Finally, I've been depressed (from a sewing standpoint) - I started working on a vintage project that I finished but it really didn't turn out the way I wanted - that's my next post. I had a multitude of problems with it - and I think I picked the wrong material - but nevertheless I did finish it and will post tomorrow morning! And I promise to be a better poster:)
