Great jeans--Hemmed

I found some amazing jeans at JC Penny's. The color is great and the back pockets are placed right, if you know what I mean. And the best thing going for it is : it's a size 12. I love that size! Isn't that the average American woman's size? I might love a size 10 even more...we'll have to see.

I bought them even though they were too long. I needed about 2 inches hemmed. "What not to Wear" advises to buy off the rack to fit your waist and then tailor them where needed. But there's no way I'm going to pay for my $19 jeans (great sale at JC Penny) to be tailored.

I googled "how to hem jeans" and found a few tutorials. This one is my favorite, by Cardigan Empire.

It was a little challenging to photograph my own jean hem in the break room at work, hoping that no one else would walk in and see me in a contortionist pose and ask what I was doing.

" You see....I have this blog.... and I just hemmed these pants and I can't post without a picture...."
