How to shorten the jeans, and still keep the original hems?

Turn the jeans inside out, sew along the hem.

By doing this, we can cut the jeans short. the shortened amount is twice the amount showing.....(I hope my English is working okay)
cut off  extra fabric.

serge along the edge.

chose a similar coloured thread.

turn the machine stitch size to very small. 1mm in my case.

fold over and sew. top stitch over the very border along the original stitch.

add a few stitches to keep the inside put of the hem from dropping out.

most of the times, you need a hammer's help to punch down the hem, as it is many layers of heavy woven  denim.

 Now look. that is how to keep the original hem.

so, cool .
