I've shopped and shopped for some khaki colored knit pull-on pants and have decided it's time to fire-up the long-sleeping sewing machine! Can anyone recommend a good pattern? I'm a 16 with a slightly longer than average inseam (but lots of talls are too long!) I also want a leg that is at least slightly flared or wider. I really want the comfort and fit that knits offer but don't have serger and will have to sew them on a regular sewing machine with the stretch stitching it offers. I'd also like to use a fabric that's mid-weight so I can pretty much wear them year-round (we have very mild winters here in Charleston, SC!).

Pattern suggestions are appreciated! Thanks!

I really like Silhouette patterns yoga pant. It is pricy $15 but the crotch curve is great. I have used Sofia knits from JoAnn or Hancocks, however I have never seen khaki.
Don't be put off by the Yoga pant label.
The only issue I have had with the Sofia knit is that it collects cat hair like crazy.

I have also been looking, unsuccessfully, for a pull-on pant wwith side pockets sized for men.
I want to make these like the poly fleece pants previously available every Fall at Costco. the legs are quite straight and loose-fitting and hemmed bottoms.
Anyone got a suggestion, please?

I've only tried one knit which was McCalls 6082. It has a loose leg and elastic waist. The PalmerPletsch fitting/alteration lines on the pattern and fitting instructions were helpful. I liked the wearable muslins I made enough and plan to sew it again (with a little more tweaking) in the future. They were my 2nd pants pattern, the first being KwikSew's Learn to Sew elastic waist pants, so I can't offer much for comparison.

I have no idea what Costco's pants look like, but I have made the sweatshirt top from this KwikSew 3028 pattern. Haven't tried the bottoms yet, but plan to eventually. They come in 2 styles, cuffed and uncuffed. HTH's

I second the Silhouette pattern yoga pants. There are a lot of size increments so you should be able to find your size. Peggy's patterns are always well drafted. I've made at least 6 variations by now. One of them is a pair in a khaki knit with front pockets and seaming down the front of the pants. They are dressy enough for work.

If you are looking for true yoga pants, the afore mentioned Kwik Sew pattern is great!
My other favorite knit pull on pant is New Look 6735. I made those pants from a very stretchy rayon Lycra and have almost worn them out! I wore them all thru my pregnancy, even. Funny that one pair of pants looked great on both my pre pregnant body and my pregnant one.
The fabric I used made them very drapey, which I liked. A medium weight matte jersey work well, too, and I think I have seen khaki matte jersey before....

Not a pant, but the free Download on Fabric.com for the Nancy Dress has a roll-down waistband that fits just like a Yoga pant, easy 3 pieces if you want a quick summer yoga skirt for that SC humidity coming....
