Step Hem Denim Trend

4/5/17


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?
