Step Hem Denim Trend


Have you seen this step hem trend around on denim jeans?  It's jeans that are cut off with the back leg hem about an inch or so longer.  In general, I love the distressed denim trend that's been around so I really like this different take on the distressed look. 
I was reading my favorite style/sewing blogger Merrick's Art recently and when I saw she had a tutorial of the step hem, I just had to give it a try.

While I was my local favorite thrift store, I found my favorite brand of jeans (Levi's) in a straight leg and mid rise waist.  Perfect to try out the stem hem!  The tutorial was easy to follow and took no time at all.  I cut about 6 inches off of the hem since the jeans were quite long.  I also used my seam ripper to give the jeans fraying a head start before I tossed them in the washing machine.  I'm happy with how they turned out.  Have you tried distressing a pair of your own jeans yet?
