If you have ever tried to make jeans at home, or if you want to try on do it, you would notice that making them for little girls is a little more difficult than making any other type of jeans, but today we will show you some easy steps to make them.

  • Choose the right fabric – Make sure you choose thick cotton denim; the color must be navy, not to light, as this will help the original fabric color to stay for more time and the color will not wash off easily.
  • Buy a golden thread – A bright gold thread is needed to make the stitches and hems, you can hand sew your jeans but it will be easier if you use a sewing machine.
  • Take measures – Take your little girl’s measures with a measuring tape, with those measures, you can buy the pattern to make your jeans on a cloth store.
  • Wash and dry – Before you start making the jeans, it is important to wash and let the fabric dry, this will pre-shrink it and it will be easier for you to handle it.
  • Cut the pattern pieces – After this is done, set them under the denim with pins, and then cut the fabric pieces.
  • Follow the pattern – Your pattern will direct you as to how to sew the cut pieces.
  • Turn down the fabric – You will join the pieces and sew them on the reverse.
  • Iron the pieces – Every time you cut the fabric, you can press them with the iron.
  • Add details – Once the pieces are sewn, add the button and zipper.
  • Try on the finished garment – Once the jeans are ready, ask your little girl to try them on with her shoes on, you will measure the length easier this way.
  • Make the hem – Once you know the length, you should make the hem, iron it and sew it.

You can also add different details to the jeans such as ribbons or patches.

“Including your children on activities is a great idea to be more together as a family, if you are planning to do something new, make sure you ask them for their opinion, they will have fun and will enjoy being part of your projects”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.

Tax Advantages

Tax Advantages

Tax Advantages of a Corporation

There are several tax advantages available to corporations: 

Medical insurance for families may be fully deductible.

Retirement plans, such as a tax-deferred trust can be set up as fringe benefit and may be tax deductible for the corporation.

Losses are fully deductible for a corporation, whereas an individual running a sole proprietorship must prove there was a profit motive before deducting losses.

Profits can be left in the corporation for further expansion of the business, and this could have tax advantages.

With a corporation, only salaries (and not profits) are subject to self-employment, or similar, taxes. This can save you thousands of dollars per year if salaries and profits are structured properly.

Corporate Taxes and Small Businesses

Many small business owners take all profits out as salaries to avoid double taxation and state corporate income tax. However, there are rules requiring that salaries be reasonable. If a stockholder’s salary is deemed to be too high relative to his or her job, the salary may be considered to be partially a dividend and subject to double taxation.

Leasing Assets to Your Corporation

Leasing assets you own to the corporation is a tool many people use to reduce their overall tax liability. For example, leasing your personal vehicle to the corporation isn’t uncommon.

When you lease assets to a corporation, the business pays a lease or rental fee and you claim the rental income. Doing this allows you as the lessor to deduct certain costs, such as maintenance and repairs, on your taxes. You may be eligible to set up a lease with your corporation if you meet the following criteria:

You must draw up a formal, valid lease agreement. You should treat the leasing agreement as you would with an unrelated party, not specifically for your corporation.

The rental amount you establish must be fair. In other words, you can’t charge anything you want. It has to be reasonable and in line with what’s being charged for similar assets in your area.

To get the most out of these advantages you should speak with an attorney or tax professional to set up a tax structure that works for your business says Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.

Dress up for work might be a challenge because sometimes you just don’t know what to wear and then comes the mistakes and you get dressed for a different occasion instead of going to work, like going to a party, visiting an aunt or a weekend at the beach.

Platform heels.- Leave them for parties or weddings and choose high heels up to 15 centimeters, your feet will thank you so much.

Beach sandals.- Forget it, and never ever use this type of shoes for work, it does not matter how fancy they look; they will cause a bad impression.

Skirts.- Never use them short, try them to be mid-calf and not so adjusted. Even if your legs are beautiful, the office is not the right place to show them.

See-through clothing.- Do you really would like to show that much? Not only your underwear will be visible but you will show more than needed.

Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, talked about the dressing code at the office and he thinks that this is now too much flexible, there are casual sport clothes or Friday dressings that only confuse women. “I think women need to stop worry about their daily outfit and just get back to the contemporary dress code, they will always be safe with those clothes”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.

Dollar’s influence in Mexico

How does the change on dollar influence on the Mexican industries?

The change on the dollar’s cost generates different type of reactions that can either benefit or affect different industries at Mexico, which is the neighboring country with a very closed business relationship. Today we will explain further how different sectors in Mexico are influenced.

“Mexico has many business relationships with U.S. companies, so everything that happens between both countries influences their economies, fortunately, that intimate relationship has helped both countries support each other during difficult times and help each other grow on their greatest times”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, a Mexican manufacturer company.

Here are some of the most important Mexican sectors and how they are influenced by the change of dollar’s price:

  • Textile – Companies dedicated to textile and cloth manufacturing have implemented increases on prices as it is not possible to absorb the whole costs that these changes have caused, especially when they import or buy raw materials that are invoiced in dollars.
  • Maquiladoras – Many of them have tried to substitute imported supplies by local ones, as the ones coming from USA have increased, while maquiladoras have been absorbing these costs in order to not increase the final prices to their customers.
  • Financial – The national banking sector does not seem to have risks, as their financings are mostly done with low interest rates.
  • Supermarkets – The dollar’s price change has not affected the basic consumer products, mainly because the products sold on the national market are produced in Mexico.

“Mexico has a strong and solid economy, the change on the dollar’s price will of course influence on different sectors, but one of the main advantages of Mexico’s current economy is that it is able to get over obstacles and hard times, as we could have possibly not been able years ago”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
