The easiest way to shorten a pair of jeans is to just roll up a little cuff, no cutting, no sewing. It’s a quick fix and gives a laid-back, casual flavor. But sometimes the amount you need to take off the length will create a deeper cuff than you want. And sometimes the rolled up cuff tends to come unrolled.

The doesn’t cut any length from the jeans, so this works well for kids’ jeans. Go to her tutorial.
