You can do two things depending on how your jeans are constructed.  You can take in the inside seam if the seam doesn't have that overlapping thing going on.  If you have the overlapping thing going on, you can take the seam apart and stitch from there.  I think that should work!  I haven't had to take in a lot of pants legs since my upper thighs are so big!

You'll also want to use a denim needle for your machine and jeans thread.  It's a thicker heavier duty thread that won't pop open when you wear your pants.
