WIW : I Hemmed My Straight Leg Jeans!

Hi Ladies,

Spent some time yesterday hemming a couple of pairs of jeans and I am hoping I got the length right.

I wore them here


and they were clearly to long!

So here's today's outfit.

Newly hemmed straight leg jeans
Satin blouse with ruffle detail
Chanel-esque jacket
Suede wedge heels

I did study Angie's posts on ppl so hoping I did ok:)

Hope you are all having a great day
xxx Deborah

    I just checked the old thread and this new length looks perfect! Well done .

    I'm really liking that textured jacket on you, and the longer length is great with the longer length top underneath -- and, of course, the PPL jeans :-)

    These make your legs look a million miles long! Awesome job. Perfect shade for your wardrobe and the fit is spot on.

    They look great to my eye. I love the blue with the neutrals.

    Length looks good to my eye! You look terrific, love that chanel style long jacket - divine!

  • Kari replied 11 years ago

    Looks great! I like that there is just the slightest amount of scrunch.

  • Angie replied 11 years ago

    KILLER newly hemmed straight leg jeans!

    I love this length, Debs. Soooooo flattering to my eye :)

    Sensational outfit too!

    AMAZING look for you! Love the new straight legs!

    Yay! These look great!! I love the satisfaction of hemming. Quick project and makes such a world of difference.

    What a sweet outfit! Girlish and sophisticated at the same time.

  • Transcona Shannon replied 11 years ago

    Perfect length Deborah - and you look gorgeous!

  • Deborah replied 11 years ago

    Thank you all:). I do love these jeans! They are high waisted and extremely comfortable.
    Very pleased the length is good as I did cut them!! I like just a little scrunch:). I used Angie's white straight legs as my guide.

    Lovely outfit, too!

  • Mamapicklejuice replied 11 years ago

    PPL perfection, Deborah! May I ask which Angie links you used? I have a pair of straight legs that needs hemming (though they fit a bit more like skinnies - not sure what the ppl is on those).

  • Deborah replied 11 years ago

    MPJ here's the link


    I just looked at Angie's pic here.

    I will post the ppl posts when I get home x

  • Jaime replied 11 years ago

    They look perfect to me.

  • Freckles replied 11 years ago

    Such a lovely outfit Deborah and I love the length.

    What brand are they? I'm off to the shops to return my straight legs tomorrow and need some recs.

  • Deborah replied 11 years ago

    MPJ here is the other link I referenced:)


    Freckles, I'm in Australia and these were from a store called Crossroads so I'm not really any help to you. I wonder if the Gap (I think) Long and Leans that some of the ladies have might be suitable for you?

    Great hem job! Luv that jacket!

  • KathyL replied 11 years ago

    Great jeans and great length! I love the whole outfit from head to toe!

  • sarah replied 11 years ago

    Gorgeous, Deb! I love the "new" jeans : )

  • Freckles replied 11 years ago

    Thanks. Spent hours in the Gap today without a decision, went for lunch and then to one of Sveta's favourite stores and scored. Your general style was the inspiration for the outfit I came home with.

  • Meredith1953 replied 11 years ago

    The pants look lovely hemmed to the new length! Truly PPL! Beautiful outfit!

  • Deborah replied 11 years ago

    Freckles, I am flattered and I am glad you had success:). I look forward to seeing the new outfit x

  • Vicki replied 11 years ago

    This outfit is gorgeous, from top to bottom!

  • Lyn D. replied 11 years ago

    Have I seen that jacket before? Just gorgeous with the slim jean silhouette and wedge shoes.

  • harmonica replied 11 years ago

    PPL! great hemming job. you look great with the top and jacket!

  • Vicki replied 11 years ago

    I've been meaning to post on this for days. It's a stunner of an outfit and I love everything about it. You nailed the hem.
