Hem For Her

A friend of mine asked me on Sunday if I could hem jeans. I've done it before, but I was wary to commit to hemming her jeans because sometimes it's soooo obvious when jeans are hemmed. But THEN I heard about a way to use the existing hem so that it actually looks good. I found a tutorial online, and I tried it out with an old pair of my jeans.
Before:

During....I like my feet :)

After!

It's hardly even noticeable that I messed with the hem at all! People, I'm very excited about this.

AAH!! This will save me so much money in alteration fees... I hadn't figured out how to do this, so I've paid for a lot of hemming. And, maybe a little extra $ could be earned on the side? Excited about tomorrow!
