Even if you are a happy owner of a super-standard figure, you must have wondered at least once: how to sew in jeans? And it’s not at all about those cases when the thing was bought out of size. It happens that it is difficult to pick up tight pants for thin legs. It happens that the model is not satisfied with the width of the trousers. And there is also such that jeans fit perfectly, but here they are a little puffy at the waist, the reason for this is the features of the figure.
So, if you don't know how to narrow your jeans at home, that's no reason to take them to the atelier. They charge so much for such a service that it’s easier to buy new ones. Decided! We take out a sewing machine, threads, tailor's chalk, scissors and tailor's pins (those with round heads).
How to sew in jeans depends on the place that we want to reduce. You can do this in three places - in the back of the belt, on the sides and at the bottom of the legs.
The first case is "your" if you have a strong deflection in the lower back, then even the tightest jeans at the back of the waist are a little puffy. To get rid of this defect, we take the following steps.We rip the back seam, cut the belt lengthwise, having previously rebuffed the belt loop (belt loop). Before unripping, you need to measure how many extra centimeters you need to remove. We divide these centimeters by two and draw with chalk on each side how much needs to be removed. The line goes from top to bottom, gradually disappears to "no" towards the end. Before cutting off excess fabric, measure how many centimeters are taken for allowances on the left and right (usually these are different values).
So, the excess fabric is cut off, according to the measured allowances, we combine the parts, sweep, sew, fold inward bogreater allowance, stitch. Turn right side out.
Cut off the excess fabric from the belt, sew the belt, sew the loop back. Ready! By the same principle, jeans are sutured from the sides. Only the side seams are ripped, of course, the belt is cut on the sides. We cut off the excess fabric, sew the side parts and the belt again, return the belt loops to their place.
Also, the question of how to sew jeans in trousers is not very difficult. For example, if you have flared jeans, and you have a passion for skinny jeans! Of course, if you have rapper jeans, take them in or don't take them in - the panties will not work. The rest can be de alt with.
Before you narrow your jeans at home, put them on, stand in front of the mirror (better stock up on an assistant). With tailor's pins, we carefully pin those places that we would like to remove. This must be done on the front side. It is enough, however, to stab only one leg, and the secondmeasure according to it, otherwise there is a great risk of getting different widths.
After stabbing, carefully remove the jeans, turn them inside out, with a tailor's chalk mark the places of stabbing from the wrong side with lines. We remove the pins, draw the line of the future seam along the lines, it should be as even as possible. Next, we combine both legs, along the drawn line we pierce all layers of fabric through and through, draw a cut line on the second leg.
Cut off the excess, sweep the seams, sew on a typewriter, process the edges with a zigzag or overlock. turn out, try on. In general, it is very useful to try on the product several times in the process.
Now you know how to sew jeans at home. Go for it!
