How to make your jeans longer?
If you want a pair of jeans that are perfect except for the length, we have good news for you as you can make them longer following some easy steps.
“Jeans can stretch out, but it is important that you treat them carefully so you do not harm the fabric or torn the threads, which would eventually damage your jeans”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal about this topic.
If you have some jeans that you wish to make longer, or if your children are growing into their pants, you will need the following:
- Shampoo for babies
- A tub
- Warm mater
- And your jeans
Submerge your jeans on the tub with warm water and the baby shampoo, as it will help you softening the denim to work easily with your jeans. Let them soak on the tub for half an hour; move your jeans constantly submerging them so the water is able to penetrate into the fibers.
Once you have taken the jeans out of the water, do not twist them, just gently squeeze them out.
Put a large towel under your jeans and roll them up to get the excessive water out of them, press down the towel still rolled with the jeans, so you can dry them as much as possible.
Put your jeans on a dry towel and start pulling your jeans, you will be getting the length you are looking for, but remember not to pull so hard or you can tear the fabric. Remember to tug from both sides of the legs.
Let your jeans dry and you will have longer pants.
“Jeans can be modified in many different ways in order to adjust them to everyone’s needs, it is only a matter of using the right tools and much imagination to create new jeans with the same garment”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.
