HOW TO MAKE RAW HEM JEANS

By Sam Higgins, May 19, 2017

Finding the perfect new pair of jeans can be a struggle. But a few DIY tweaks to your current denim could prove the solution was lying in your wardrobe all along. We’ve put together a handy tutorial to help you turn your classic pants into summer-ready, raw-hemmed jeans.

1. Take the jeans you want to trim, put them on, and roll the cuffs up to the desired new length.

2. Use a pen to mark the bottom edge of each rolled cuff.

3. Remove the jeans and turn them inside out.

4. Turn the pen mark into a complete line across the width of each jean leg, front and back (use a tape measure to make sure it’s straight).

5. Cut along each line with scissors.

6. Pull at the now-raw hems with your fingers, making the frayed edges more prominent.

7. Keeping the jeans inside out, use a needle and thread to add a few stitches along the seam of each leg to reinforce the structure.

8. Finally, turn the jeans back the right way around and pair with some classic Reeboks for a fresh summer-ready look.
