Fixing a crooked hem

I'm trying to hem a pair of pants, based on the visible crease from the pants before they unraveled. I'm using pins/needles to keep the material in place and doing a simple hand-stitch to fix the hem. I'm afraid they may end up crooked and I'd like to plan ahead for the worst.
What could I do to fix them if they become crooked?

  • Don't let them become crooked! Make sure you press the hem before you sew, and if you want to iron in some stitch witchery to hold the hem in place then finish sewing. It's easier to hem them straight, than to fix a crooked hem. Good luck!

  • I looked at them when I was all done, and they came out straight. Yay! The true test, I suppose, is when I put them on.
