Step by Step Guide: How to Make MC Hammer Pants

Step 1: Gather Materials

To make the pants with a simple elastic waist, you will need A pair of sweatpants (preferably black), An oversized shirt with long sleeves, and pants legs. If you like, sew sleeves together to make them into one seamless leg.

Step 2: Put on Shirt

Put the shirt around your waist, and pull the sleeves over your shoulders. The extra length of the shirt’s torso will cover your shorts or underwear for when you’re upside down in a handstand or split.

Use a Fabric Glue

Step 3: Tuck In Shirt Sleeves

Fold the cuff of each sleeve into itself to make a simple hem, and press it flat with your hand. Then fold the cuff back out by about an inch, and sew it in place. The sleeves should now be tucked inside their hems, creating the illusion of pants legs.

Step 4: Hem Pants Legs

Tie the sweatpants around your ankles, and pull them inside out. Fold the cuff of each pants leg inside itself for a clean hem, then press it flat with your hand. Fold the cuffs back out by about an inch, and sew them in place to create a second hem.

Step 5: Make Elastic Waist

If you want to make real pants, take your oversized shirt and sew its waist seam shut so that it’s one continuous tube of fabric. Next, use the elastic from an old pair of underwear as a drawstring to create a simple elastic waistband for the pants. Then cut away the excess fabric from the waist to create a pattern for your final pants.

Step 6: Create Final Pants

Use your pattern to cut out two pieces of fabric for the legs and another for the waistband. Sew the three pieces together to create jeans-style pants with an elastic waistband. You can now go about hemming them however you like!

Some Helpful Tips and Suggestions

1. When sewing the middle piece of your pants, make sure that it is not too tight or hanging on the side.

2. Make sure to pull the fabric when you sew the two pieces together to ensure a good seam.

3. When turning in your pant legs, make sure they are completely inside out before ironing them. It will be very difficult to get them turned if you don’t.

Use Your Pattern to  Cut Out Two Pieces

4. Watch your measurements when sewing the waistband together, making sure that they are even around.

5. When ironing the waistband, it seams flat, do not leave the iron in one spot for too long, or you will burn through the material of your pants!

6. If you are using a very thick material, try to cut the fabric just on the inside of the line. It will be easier to sew and won’t take away from your final product.

7. Try not to use too much fabric when making your pant leg pockets because it will add unnecessary bulk and weight to the pants. If you do not want to make the pockets, you could always cut them out and sew a straight line across where they were.

Things to Consider When Making MC Hammer Pants:

  1. Hammer Pants are generally worn high on the waist.
  2. Length of pants looks best when it is no longer than the ankle bone
  3. Pants have a zipper fly or button fly, but not both because this would look unbalanced and tacky
  4. 4. Pockets should be very shallow and cut at an angle so you can see the color of the underpants readily
  5. Avoid pleats at all costs unless you are making pajama pants because pleats look very outdated
  6. Make sure your pants are extra baggy to give their full effect
  7. Heavy fabric is best, but avoid stiff fabrics because they will stand out awkwardly
