Since getting the lovely sewing machine, I have been doing all the tasks I only dreamed of doing. Like hemming pants. My pants are never the right height. I am not tall but not short either, so I have to choose between Regular which are often too long or Ankle, which make me look like I belong with the Jets in the '50s. Neither are super great options, but I usually choose to drag my pants than look like a square. However, with the machine, I don't have to have ruffed up hems anymore. I learned to hem- and I will now share it with you.
I found there are two ways to hem: the easy way and the hard way. Here is my tutorial of The Easy Way.
First iron the pants to the correct height.
End up with some pinches like this on the inside hem if the pants are flared.
And you are done!
