MY DIY STEP HEM JEANS

I love step hem jeans. I love them with pumps, with booties, with sneakers. They’re a nice change-up on the old crop pant, and at my age, they even feel a little edgy. All good things! The only problem is, as of yesterday, I didn’t own a pair of step hem jeans. I was merely stalking them online and in stores.

The cheapest remedy to this situation was to make my own. This was a super easy project, too! Here’s how I did it.
HOW TO: DIY STEP HEM
1. RUMMAGE THROUGH YOUR CLOSET FOR AN OLD PAIR OF JEANS.
The best candidate for this is a pair of jeans you don’t wear very often because they’re too long. I picked out a pair of white J.Crew jeans that were given to me, secondhand, by a daughter’s friend about six years ago. They’re a little long and bulky through the calf — so I’ve been rolling them up to a crop height.

PUT THE JEANS ON AND MARK THE LONG SIDE.
There is no rule on how long your step hem pants should be. Try shopping pants online to find the length you like. When I went through this process, I found many lengths I didn’t like. Some were long and awkward and others were short and awkward.

MEASURE AND CUT ALL THE WAY THROUGH.
Measuring from the bottom up, make a series of marks across the leg of your jean, where you want to cut. Don’t be conservative, either. It’s much easier to cut a straight line the first time, versus cutting once and then trying to trim from there.
