My step-daughter is forever needing jeans hemmed, but they always come out with a “flat” ordinary-looking hem, not the “fluted” or wavy hem that is on purchased jeans. I’ve noticed signs at repair shops advertising a “Jeans Hem” and a higher price. Since I am trying to instill the importance of doing for oneself when possible AND still making “Step-Mother of the Year” (Mother’s Day is on Sunday… do we get our own day?), I want to sew the hem myself, but have her happy with the results.
Does anyone know how to achieve a traditional jeans hem? I own several machines, including an industrial, if a special machine is required.
