I'm looking for patterns for two different styles of bell bottoms for my daughter. The first is a knit version -- elastic waist and very snug fit. This is the look she wants:

The other pair are a bit more loose fitting, draw string waist, rayon:

Can you all believe the price on these things? They also come in non-stripe florals.

With the first one that is tight use. Legging
Pattern and flair out from the knee.
The looser one you could use a pj pattern
That has a draw string waist. You could
Widen the legs there. Kwik sew patterns
Would be good for this.

I Just found this by Burda when I was looking at the catalogue today. It looks sort of similar to what you're looking for perhaps?

I'll try anything once :)

Please excuse my typos...sometimes it is harder to go back and edit on mobile than it is worth!

For the first one, there are lots of yoga pants patterns you could make even slimmer on top and add some more flare to the bottom. I know KwikSew has a few, Jalie would work (just make the back one solid piece instead of seamed) and I'm sure burda would have something. I would definitely go with something that has a front pattern piece and a back pattern piece (not a one piece legging pattern) because of the amount of flare you are going to want to add on the bottom.

This pattern would work great as a start, just add an elastic waist instead of the separate waistband and flare the legs more.
