Have you ever tried to hem a pair of jeans?
If you have, you probably realize that there are a few special considerations, both because of the fabric (denim is thick!) and the look (decorative topstitching).
- Minimizing bulk in the seams.
- How to press the hem properly using a clapper.
- Getting the topstitching to look just right.
- Using the hump jumper to get over bulky seams.
If you still need a little more guidance, Bernina also has a handy video on hemming jeans.
