temporary hems...

it is possible to temporarily shorten a pair of jeans just for the spring summer months so that you can wear flip flops without ruining the jeans? or should i look for a shorter pair of jeans?

You can do the fold up method. Inca has a guide somewhere in GD

the temp hems will wear themselves and it'll look weird when you let them back out, i think?
I did a fresh hem on some jeans and they're already creasing up like original hems

I would imagine that there would be a bit of creasing if you washed them regularly.

There will be creasing and fading but just try not to get them too dirty so you don't have to wash them too much!!

I hemmed some crops that were still too long using the Euro method except I didn't tuck the excess under. I left it out like a cuff. They are cute that way.

Just do the fold up-hemming method. I do this to all of my jeans because I'm really short, but I always leave all the material so I can take the hem out if I want to sell them. There are creases when the hem is initially taken out, but if you soak the creases and rub them when they are wet, they have always come out for me.

A bit of advice though! Make SURE you use thread that won'd bleed when it gets wet, or else you will end up with a circle of the thread color around the jeans when you take the hem down. This is particularly important with lighter washes.

I just use white thread... And yeah the jeans will crease a bit, that is pretty much not avoidable. Depending on how much you help and how much you end up stepping on just by walking will affect how noticeable the crease is when you undo the hem.

When I hem jeans myself I do it with the understanding that I should accept it as permamant, but just that I'm too cheap to get it done elsewhere and if I wasn't too scared of cutting the jeans I'd do it that way ;) But sometimes I do change my mind and undo the hem so it's better htat way I think!

You can also use glue. All you have to do is take them to the dry cleaners and the glue will come out.
