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!

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.
