How To Hem Jeans — Original Hem & Euro Hem (Video)

Steven and Chris

An original hem is THE way to hem your jeans properly. It keeps the store-bought distressed hem of your jeans in tact, and it doesn’t look like you’ve done a home-sewing hack on your pants. (Hello Grade 6 flashbacks when my mom used to do a topstitch hem on my cords. OUCH!)

Some people call this hem a Euro hem, but no matter what you call it, it looks great and it’s easy to do! I showed Steven and Chris how to hem jeans with an original hem.

Watch here…

Denise Wild:
So you’ve bought a pair a pants, you’re going out tonight–

Host, Chris Hyndman:
Yep.

Denise:
—and your pants are too long; you have to hem them, you don’t have time to go to the tailor’s.

Chris:
Yep.

Host, Steven Sabados:
Perfect.

Denise:
So I’m going to show you how to do what’s called an original hem — it’s sometimes referred to as a Euro hem, and it preserves this destressed edge of your jeans.

Chris:
Okay.

Denise:
That’s the one you want to keep so it doesn’t look like you hemmed your jeans.

Chris:
Yeah.

Steven:
Yeah, because nothings worse than just you– you hemmed them under and you get that little–

Denise:
Right.

Chris:
I just need to know who owns these jeans?

Denise:
Those are actually my husband’s jeans.

Chris:
I’m five-eleven. How tall is he? Because these go up to my boobs.

Denise:
He’s got very long legs.

Chris:
He’s got long legs. Wow! Okay.

Denise:
Ridiculously long legs.

Steven:
Wow. Okay.

Chris:
So I’m going to ruin his jeans. Okay. He looks like a big guy. Maybe I should use yours and you can do his.

Denise:
We can swap if you want.

Chris:
No, I’m okay. Okay, sorry.

Denise:
So what we’re going to do–

Chris:
Yeah.

Denise:
—is turn our– the hem of our jeans right sides together.

Chris:
Yeah.

Steven:
Yeah.

Denise:
We’re going to take off two inches off the bottom of these jeans. So we’re going to use our sewing gauge to actually measure up one inch from the fold–

Chris:
Okay.

Steven:
Oh, okay.

Denise:
—to the top of the– this groove in the hem right here.

Steven:
Right.

Chris:
Right.

Denise:
So you’re measuring one inch from the fold–

Steven:
Okay.

Chris:
Okay.

Denise:
—to that groove, and what that will give you is two inches, because you’ve got the one inch on this side –

Steven:
Yeah.

Denise:
—and the one inch on the other–

Steven:
On the other side.

Denise:
Exactly.

Chris:
Perfect. Okay.

Denise:
So–

Steven:
We need to then just pin that all the way around, right?

Denise:
Exactly.

Chris:
Yeah, okay.

Denise:
We’ve going to pin that in place. I’ve got the pins in front of us here.

Chris:
Yep.

Denise:
And the wrist pin cushions if you want too.

Steven:
Okay.

Denise:
Because I know, Christopher, you loved the wrist–

Chris:
Oh, where’s my watch? I loved that one. Where is it?

Denise:
It’s right here.

Chris:
There I got it. Right here. And it says “love” on it.

Steven:
Okay, so and um, before–

Denise:
So we’re going to measure all the way around one inch, around here–

Chris:
Okay.

Denise:
—and then we’re going to sew it in place.

Steven:
Okay.

Chris:
Alright, sweetheart, we have thirty seconds left. So-

Denise:
So I have some–

Chris:
Can we do this in thirty–

Denise:
—that are already pinned.

Chris:
Can we do this in thirty seconds?

Denise:
Absolutely.

Chris:
Okay, let’s motor.

Denise:
So we take this off the extensions.

Chris:
I’ve got my watch on. I’m timing you.

Denise:
Okay.

Steven:
So where do we sew it from? That’s important.

Denise:
We’re going to sew about two millimeters away from that groove–

Chris:
Okay.

Denise:
—or even a quarter– a sixteenth of an inch.

Steven:
Okay.

Denise:
And you’re just going all the way around; taking out your pins as you go.

Steven:
Okay.

Denise:
So just doing this straight stitch.

Chris:
Yeah.

Denise:
And don’t forget your back stitch and then just go around.

Chris:
And then just shhhh. Fire around. Okay.

Steven:
So let’s just pop that out and let’s see quickly how that’s going to kind of look–

Denise:
You bet.

Steven:
—so we can see before we have to run to break.

Denise:
So once you’ve got it all the way around–

Chris:
Yep.

Denise:
—when you flip that over–

Chris:
Oh, you’ve got a perfect hem.

Denise:
You’ve got a beautiful finish.

Chris:
And you’ve got that nice finished look.

Denise:
Yeah.

Chris:
Awesome job!

Steven:
That’s amazing.

Denise:
Yes.

Steven:
All the instructions will be on the website as well–

Denise:
Yes.

Steven:
But this is a classic quick fix. That’s brilliant.

Chris:
And I’m going to take my watch home with me. We’re out of time. I can’t believe it. Thanks so much for being here.

Denise:
Thank you for having me.

Steven:
Thank you, Denise.

Chris:
Nice job.

Steven:
Everybody, we have to take a quick break. When we come right back, we’re going to find out which oil will help you lose weight.

Chris:
Nice.

Chris:
Thanks so much.

Steven:
Thanks so much!
