Original Hem – New twist on an old alteration

P4170047Summertime is here- put away your boots and bring out the flip flops. A client was going through her closet and brought me some favorite jeans that we had originally hemmed to wear with heels. They were too worn out for evening wear but would be great with sandals and a rock tee-shirt this festival season. She wanted to keep the original hem but also wanted to be able to roll them up without exposing ugly serging. The solution? We shortened  the jeans an inch and a quarter and covered the serging with a pretty trim. Now they are favorites again!

Cost of original hem with trim: $20
