  1. This is exactly the video I was looking for. No loud annoying music in between instructions or gaudy finger nails and oversized diamond rings which are distracting. Thank you

  2. Skinny jeans or pants are not for everyone. For some, it only accentuates the problem. I do not think the "funnel" look is nice. That being said, I need to slim some of my more expensive trousers that's why I'm here. You are hired!

  3. While this works, I would have opened up the hem and stitched through to the raw edge of the bottom of the hem with straight stitch machine. Then, I would have used the serger. Noice that the seams are a bit wavy, and thats why. Pressing helps, and it is good for a very quick fix, which is what people want these days, rather than tailoring.Nice calm and clear presentation.

  4. Another way is to measure the bottom of pant, starting a knee, measure the width of original pant, take a ruler and measure the the amount to take out take chalk and Mark down equal on both sides. Very good video.

  5. Nice video. You speak so clearly & that is very helpful. I used to sew a lot but "someone", (no names here husband), took my sewing room over for junk. I always made my kids clothes growing, including swim suits. When I babysat regularly I made clothes for the kids in my care. Now I'm lucky to find room & time to do more than repairs. I almost got a serger years & years ago but I got chicken about all the threading it right, etc… I would now if I sewed more but I'm pushing 66 very hard in a few weeks & I no longer have use for one to do more than a few things.
    One question: Would I take in the legs of my new sweatpants the same way? I didn't know when I bought them that they were like the 60s elephant bell bottoms!! lol! I don't like to hem sweat fleece so for now I put shoelaces in the hem & tie them. I had elastic in them twice but they were not comfortable.

  6. I have some flare jeans that I love but wanna make skinny. The outside seam is that decorative 2-line topstitch. I’d like to keep that seam. Would it work if I cut the inside seams open & trimmed the fabric there, so I don’t lose that outside seam I like?

  7. Loved this and I wish you lived down the road to me as I got several wide leg trouser, still in great condition but wish the legs were not so wide. I don't own a sewing machine unfortunately.

  8. Excellent video! I'm just getting started with sewing and this is one of the best tutorials I've watched. I really appreciate how you explained basic serger function, needles, thread required based on the type of fabric, and what the finished stitch actually looks like. A lot of these details are omitted in the general "how to" videos. I feel more confident with my projects after watching this. It feels like a crime gaining all of this knowledge for free. You're absolutely incredible!
