This technique to make jeans a little longer does work, only leaves behind the faint lines of where the hem was. I have used a magic marker in the same color as the jeans and gone over the whitish lines to fool the eye a bit. Also using Rit all-purpose liquid denim blue dye and re-dying the entire pair of jeans helps them to look new again after hemming.
