I am just tickled to death that I learned something new.
I have a jean fetish. Come fall, with the slight drop in the thermometer, I am itching to jump into a pair of comfy jeans and an oversized sweater. It was no surprise that as Laken and I were shopping last week, I found yet another pair calling my name. As usual, they were way too long. However, I am so cheap I didn't want to pay for alterations. Having altered the last 3 or 4 I bought, I knew I could do it myself. Although, I knew there was a certain alteration method that preserves the original hem. So, I googled it.
It is called a European hem. Nordstrom charges $22 for it. This link shows you how to do it. I did it in just minutes and was tickled pink! I hope you appreciate it more than my hubby did when following my experiment I anxiously called him at work. He didn't share the same enthusiasm.
