I just created a video on how to hem Jeans the easy way if anyone would like to watch. I have several videos on sewing and serging because I love to sew and never had anyone to teach me. I want to pass along my passion! Thanks, Cindy

Nice technique cutting out one layer of the seam.

What a great idea for avoiding the extra thickness at the side seams! So simple.

Yup, good idea removing some seam to reduce thickness. I'll remember that technique.

But I have to ask: Everybody is always talking about hemming jeans. I've never had to hem jeans yet. Is that because I buy men's sizes, which come in whatever length you want? Are women's sizes not available in different lengths? Just wondering!

A sewing machine is just a welder for textiles.

Al women's jeans are not sold by inseam length. If you are lucky you will find petite/short, average, and tall/long. Each brand is different. I am tall and have always needed tall/long but I can't always find that. If you are shorter, you may need to hem the jeans.
BTW I have done something similar; it makes good sense to me.
