Hip-cycled tuxedo pants are way when you rip open the side seams and sew in a strip of fabric…using a necktie! Athleisure is continuing to be a major trend in fashion and showcases stripes down the sides of pants which continues to trend this season. Upcycle an old pair of trousers into something trendy and fun using a necktie.

First, remove the seam from one leg of the pants

Start by using your seam remover and use a slow and steady pulling motion to draw the seam remover across the stitches and down the side of the trousers. Only do one side at a time to make the project easier.

Next, arrange the tie down the side of the pants

Line up the skinny end of the tie on one side of the waistband and pin it in place all the way down to the ankles.

Start sewing the tie into place

After arranging the tie into place with the pins, use your sewing machine to sew the tie onto the pants. Cut the tie for hemming later and save the rest of the tie for another project.

Turn the pants inside out

Next, turn the pants inside out and pin the other side of the tie down the trousers and sew that into place. Then, turn the pants right side out do a quick hem at the bottom and then pull out the excess threads that are left over from the original seam. Iron out the pants and repeat the same process on the other leg.

This will leave you with trendy trousers that looked like they walked off the pages of a fashion magazine. It’s a super easy way to upcycle old jeans that don’t quite fit anymore and make something trendy and new.
