Remove your jeans. Take note of where the pin is located, and re-pin the jeans, putting the orginal hem slightly above your first mark.

Sew right next to the original hem, like in this image.

Then do a zig zag stitch just below the seam you just sewed to help prevent fraying. Cut off the extra fabric, fold over, and iron flat.

Then top stitch. This secures the zig zag stitch area and prevents it from flipping up after washing. Make sure the thread matches perfectly, and keep your line straight and even.

Iron pants for a little bit and that’s it!
