Pants Live Longer!

Sunday, October 17, 2010

  This is my first blog and I'm new at this so here I go. I am the only one in my family (well that lives in my house) that sews. My family does not have alot of money and I'm only a kid (well 12 years old). I try to save my family as much money as I can. Okay now your probably bored with my life so I'll get to my point of this blog:

 Ok am pretty short for my age but I am a normal size in pants except. I have to buy a size 8 short, no problem but pretty soon they're 'high-waters' or too short. So instead of buying pants over and over again so what I did was I took my short jeans and a good size fabric scrap and I folded the ends up on the fabric and sewed them onto the ends of my jeans or pants and DONE! I hope this helps bye!

Good for you

I am also a petite - but I usually buy regular length jeans & pants & put up the hem at the bottom. (For jeans you can temporarily put them up with duct tape until you wash them the first time - as after the washing they have a tendency to shrink & get shorter, which would spoil any hemming job by making it too short.) What you are doing is called putting a "false hem" in - making the hem essentially out of another fabric - Once again - good for YOU. Oh - & if you want to keep a dark wash dark as long as you can - DON'T wash them too much (if at all) - you can use Febreze or steam the middle area to freshen it....

You will find a LOT of good advice here which will stand you in good stead now & in the future - Good for YOU.
