My jeans are so comfortably lovely!
Today I have the day off from work (because my boss is awesome), so I decided to hem my free Gap jeans from Betsy’s party and they look terrific!
Here’s before and after. (Again, please excuse the poor photo quality. I need a new camera, and then I need to learn how to use it properly).
They were at least 4.5″ too long. So long I couldn’t see my feet under all that denim! I’m not particularly short, either. The thread I used is almost the same color as the original, so one would have to look pretty closely at my ankles to see they were hemmed. My sewing machine was in good form today, and I used a brand new denim needle (because I bought one by mistake once and never returned it- sometimes being lazy is a good thing!) I didn’t have much trouble at all sewing over the side seams. I think they look pretty professional. Not bad for my first attempt at hemming!
Now they’re just the right length and they fit so nicely!
Knitting updates in my next post.
