Since I am short, I rarely find jeans (or any kind of pants) that are not too long. The only exception is "ankle length", which is just the right length for me. I bought a new pair of jeans last weekend, and of course they were too long. I remember seeing on Pinterest a neat way of hemming jeans that retained the original hem. I did a quick search, found this Pin, and I was in business. In about 15 minutes I had hemmed my jeans! I was so happy. This really is such an easy way to do it.
You can find this pin here.
