I made the wide-legged pants from the August 2013 issue of Burda magazine using some fabric that I got for free from a former coworker. I left off the drawstrings, and used my own preferred in-seam pocket. I also whacked about 14″ off in the length. I’m really happy with how the pants ended up!
The pants use a channeled elastic waistband. The channels bump it up above a plain pajama waistband and make the pants really comfortable to wear.
I also used the blind hem stitch on my machine. It worked for the most part, but I still need a bit of practice.
