Happy Wednesday everyone! I have a simple DIY project for you today. I found these straight leg Levi’s jeans at Marshall’s not too long ago. However, they were a tad too long as you can see in the photo below. Since I figured I didn’t spend full price on these jeans, I’d risk tailoring the hems myself. Read on for my process. It’s unbelievably easy, trust me!
First, try the jeans on and turn up the hem to where you want to shorten it. I cuffed the hems to where I wanted them and then, you can mark it with a fabric pencil or chalk, or just eye it like I did here.
Then cut away. After I cut the first leg, I like to line up the second leg against it to make sure they’re even.
Using the seam ripper, pluck the ends until it starts to fray. Or you can just wash it and let the washer/dryer do the fraying for you.
They look like the mom jeans I’ve had my eyes on in store and for less! I love the new length of my DIY! It’s perfect for Spring. What do you think? Simple, right?!
Pin it for later!
