Does anyone know of or have a pants pattern with an elastic waist that has a slim leg or could be revised to be that.

Thank you

I haven't tried them myself, but a friend of mine swears by Style Arc's pull-on pants patterns. They have several that might suit you depending on how slim you want the leg to be. Have a look here. The size range is quite wide, but you only get one size per pattern so it's worth spending some time figuring out their sizing.

One woman. One sewing machine. One giant stack of fabric. What could possibly go wrong?

I was going to say everyone is raving about the Linda pant by Style Arc.

Louise Cutting has just modified her one seam pull on pants to include side seams. There is a recent review of this pants.

Linda 75142 posted her review on 2/24/13 and the pattern is Cutting Line Designs. Her pants look terrific.

Louise has quite a following on Artisan Square and many sewists swear by her one seam pants. Her instructions are also quite good.

Hi, I haven't gotten into posting pattern reviews - something I must do soon, but take a look at New Look 6110. I made a pair of pants using a mystery fabric that I thought I wouldn't like, but I love them and wear them all the time. The fabric is a sort of mid weight knit. The legs are narrow and the waitband is elastic. The top is also cute.

Peggy Sagers Silhouette patterns are quite good. She has two yoga pant patterns that can be made with stretch denim. On the website silhouette patterns you can click on "past webcasts" and she has excellent hour long instructions on how to fit. Her method is to take the fabric you plan on using and hold it around you as tight or loose as you like, sit down and make sure it still is correct. We all enlarge when we sit. Then measure the length and choose the size based on that measurement on the back of the pattern. Her measurements on the pattern are finished garment measurements, not your own personal size measurements. I took a class from her in Keystone Colorado and she fit everyone of us there. Let me tell you, there was not one person there who was not a good sized plus plus, me included. If you are larger than the pattern she instructs you how to grade up. She does a live webcast every other Monday and you can write in and ask questions. I suggest watching her videos, there must be close to 50 by now. She does go in on how to fit over a big tummy, plus things like big inner thighs, front or back thighs and drooping shoulders, saggy bust, flat butt and any possible problem you can imagine on one of the pant webcast. I can't remember which one right now. One of her models on one of the pant webcasts is a plus size lady who looks like a lot of us plus size women. She is not a larger perfect shape, but instead a short women with a big tummy, flat butt, saddlebags, low front waist and high back waist and many more issues. Peggy gets her fitted step by step. I recommend taking a look and if need be, apply her methods to another pattern from a different company if you wish. Peggy encourages customers to either writing or call her if you are running into fitting problems. She sincerely enjoys helping us get great fitting clothes and will always answer your questions. Good luck. I would love to hear what you all think and what you made if you try one of her patterns.

Another vote for the Style Arc Linda pants. I made them a while back and wear them a lot. Very comfortable.

I love the Linda pants (that leg is usually as narrow as I go.) The SA Elle pants have a really narrow leg and they have an enthusiastic following, too. The SA crotch curve is wonderful; all I needed to do on the Linda pants was widen the waist (since I have widened my own) and drop the seam line to lower the front waist, easily done when I attached the waistband.
