Euro hems for jeans?

DebJ | Posted in Fitting on

Hi,

This is my first time on this forum. Quite interesting. I have a question for anyone who can help. How do you do Euro hems on jeans? I’ve also heard of them as “super hems”. I don’t understand how, when you cut out the chunk and resew, the seam doesn’t show. I asked a hemming place in a local mall how to do the hem, but the woman was quite nasty and said they couldn’t tell me how to do them. I guess she was afraid I might take some business away. Oh well. So, if anyone knows how to do these hems, I would appreciate some instruction. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Deb,  There is another message board called forums.about.com that has a message number 13107 that tells exactly how to do it.  I do not feel comfortable just copying this message for you but I am sure you can go to the forum and get the information.  Here is the exact URL:

    Hope this is what you had in mind.

      Thanks Mary,

      This is my first post, and I wasn't even sure I had the right board. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

        Is this the hem that is on p 72 of the dec05-jan-06 issue of Threads?

          Hi,

          I don't really know if it's the same hem, since I don't subscribe to Threads magazine. I ususally just pick up a copy from time to time if it has info I need in that particular magazine. I only know that they call it a Euro hem, and I have a customer that would like her jeans hemmed this way. I'm trying to figure out how to do it, and the link Mary gave me has a post describing how to do it.
