I have been using hem tape to adjust my pants for as long as I can remember. I discovered hem tape over 25 years and have been using it to DIY my pants and jeans for years. It is a great no sew solution that allows you to hem something on the fly. After wearing jeans shorts all summer long, I realized that I am sick and tired of trying to keep my cuffed jeans shorts in place. Cuffed jean shorts are usually only sewn in the corners and they lose their cuff in the middle after only one wash. Skipping washing is not an option in this summer heat. I found Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape and Scotch™ Essentials Permanent Hem Bonding Strips to help me with my short hemming DIY project.
The temporary hemming is new for me and I was super excited to see that it was an option. Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape makes it so you can easily change hem length for shorts and jeans alike. You can wear your shorts more modestly around your mother in law and then roll them up for a hot day on South Beach. P.S. No ironing or sewing required! Just stick and go!!!
I bought a new pair of high waisted shorts at Target this week along with a bunch of other stuff, including, but definitely not limited to:
How to Hem Summer Shorts to the Length you Want
Tools & Supplies
Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape
Open the area where the shorts are cuffed.
Make sure that the tape will fit into the crease without being seen.
Remove tape from backing, position inside the hem and rub firmly in place.
Slowly peel off the backing to expose adhesive.
Fold fabric over tape and rub firmly.
Hemming and Washing Tips
Remove Scotch™ Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape before washing, ironing or dry cleaning. If you want the hem to be permanent, use the Scotch™ Essentials Permanent Hem Bonding Strips which can be washed as it holds securely through cold water wash and low temperature dry cycle.
