So what makes this magic happen, you ask? You need a blind hemming foot because this called a blind hem. I never knew that this foot could do such a thing, but I've used it twice and it really is magic. I used to be afraid of it because it looks like it would break the needle.
Then I tried just doing a regular hem and I couldn't even make that happen. It's all probably because I was in a hurry to wear them that afternoon (to a lia sophia show where I literally did not make ONE sale and had to drive an hour each way to get there and smell CANDLES the entire time which my nose does not appreciate). So, not really caring if I have them to wear to my show this afternoon, I gave it another whirl by looking at the first pair I did a while back ( I knew if I personally had done it once, I could somehow channel that knowledge again and make it work). All of a sudden, light dawned and we had a beautiful hem.
I like my hem on these kinds of pants to fall just above the bottom of the heel of my shoe. This poses a problem because I wear different heels, mostly not very high. I will never be able to wear these with total flats. But that's OK because they will be ass kicking gorgeous with all of my slightly to very high heeled shoes. These are the marvelous pants that I walked into Ann Taylor Loft, tried on and they instantly worked on me. Very rare.
I especially like how they show off my derriere. I'll leave you with a look at my super fine ass. Just kidding, I can't seem to get a clear picture of my but-tocks by myself. I'll leave it to your imagination.
