Since all the "hot" brands of jeans run long these days, I've had to come up with a way to hem them for my clients. This is usually fairly simple by just moving the original hem up to the right length and reattaching it. Today I had to hem a pair of dark, but still "worn" jeans with a 2 inch original hem that the customer wanted to have duplicated, but I was taking up so much that it couldn't be reattached. Some of you may find this useful: To duplicate the worn around the bottom hem I used the "cheese grater" side of a foot file and then used the pumice side to finish it off. It turned out very well and she was thrilled.
