so I had my PBJ-005BK jeans tapered a bit a while back, and the tailor did an excellent job of tapering. However when it came down to the hem she used a weird combination of black threading on the inside and golden threading on the outside that clashed greatly with the original chainstitch. The area was only like 3 inches on the outseam, but considering I wear all my jeans cuffed a little bit, it was bothering me greatly. I considered going to BiG to get them re-hemmed but instead I took some time and found some methods to chain stitch by hand, here are the results: the method I used was a simple chainstitch using a single thread, I could not replicate the machine chainstitch exactly as it consisted of two separate threads and was far more intricate and beyond my skils. However I am pretty happy with the results and if I had before pictures to show you, I think you'd agree that they look much better. I just wanted to show this so that if any of you had simple repairs to be made, you don't have to settle for machine hem. P.S. I have no idea how sturdy this will be or how it will hold up after a wash, but hopefully it'll last a while.
