We offer you the instructions for suturing jeans. You will need:

- sewing machine.
Before we talk about how to sew jeans, let us dwell on some important nuances. This is somewhat harder than sewing trousers, and that's why:
- The main problem is in the finishing joints,which on jeans are made with contrasting thread. Their color and texture is difficult to reproduce reasonably accurately. However, if you pick up the thread in tone, the difference will not be too noticeable.
- Jeans are usually sewn from dense material, and the seams on them are very thick. If your home machine is not designed for such a load, you will have to flash some areas manually.
- For the same reason, sometimes you should not copy the jeans seam "to the castle." You can do it with imitation.
- And finally, it's worth it if you are going to sew jeans for size, in extreme cases - two. Only then will the result cost your efforts.
How to sew jeans in your belt
So, you bought new jeans, and they sit perfectlyon the hips, but large in the belt. This problem is more often related to women than men, and is related to the characteristics of the female figure. Usually, in such cases, the jeans hamstring from behind. Therefore, we will also cover them on the back seam.
Put on your jeans and measure withcentimeter tape is your volume in the place where the belt is located. Now take off your jeans and measure the length of the belt. Divide the difference between the two dimensions into two. At this size we have to shift the middle seam.
Reverse the back of the loophole and belt for bothsides of it by 7-8 cm in each direction. Gently pull the step seam a few centimeters to the right and left of the middle. Spread the middle seam, smooth it and grind it with pins, directing them perpendicular to the tissue cut. Set aside from the old seam the distance obtained in the first step. Using chalk and ruler, draw a tangent to the local area of the ruptured middle seam.
Stitch the halves of the jeans on the new middle seam. Trim the fabric 1 cm from the seam and trim the cut with a zigzag stitch. Press the oversize and lay a double finishing line on the front side. Again, fold the padded seam and detach it on the front side.
Now let's take up the belt. Attach it to the top of the jeans and place the tags where the belt touches the middle seam. Cut off excess fabric (do not forget about the allowance!). Fold the halves of the belt with the front side and mend. Razhyuzhte allowances and attach the belt to the upper cut from the front side. If necessary, build a finishing line. From the underside of the belt, it is better to sew by hand with a hidden seam. Again, sew a loophole - it will close the seam on the waist.
How to sew jeans in your hips
Such a need may arise if yousuddenly lost weight, but do not want to part with your favorite jeans. It is even easier to sew jeans in the hips than in the waist, because the side seams are not always decorative, which means that yourinterference will be less noticeable.
The technology of operation is the same as described above. Only now you have to separate the belt from the right and left and make two seams instead of one. In addition, you can prevent rivets located on the pockets. In this case, you have to take the fabric from the back halves in the seam and use the manual seams in the most uncomfortable places. Try to mask the seams on the belt under the side loops. And if you do everything neatly, the result will please you.
How to sew jeans in your legs
Jeans practically do not go out of fashion. But their form can vary from season to season. Narrow models are now relevant. So if you want to stay in the trend, you can redo the last year's pair.
Put on your jeans inside out and arm yourself with the packing of tail pins. Standing in front ofmirror, chop the fabric from both sides on onefrom the inside of the pants. Remove your jeans and draw a seam line so that it is even. Using pins and tailor chalk, copy the line to the second leg also from the inside. Sweep away the seams and try on the jeans.
If everything suits you, you can proceed to sewing seams. Before this, you need to tear off the pant leg, and after sewing the pants again bend and hem jeans.
