Hey folks!! I saw some linen pants in the Eddie Bauer catalogue. They are flat front, casual pants with a straight leg. Anyone know of any patterns that would fit the bill?

Hi! You might check out the pants pattern here on PR under JSM. On the home page, look in the lower right hand corner under 'also available' and you will see JSM. The pattern has lots of extras and is a classic very Bauer style. Happy sewing! Coco

You're tall and thin. Maybe this pattern? Burda 7447

Tallbean, It looks like we are the same build. I just made Vogue 1294 (Ann Kline) pants and they turned out great. I made them out of linen and I love how they fit. The only alteration I made was to scoop the crotch area a little and then I shortened the waist 2" because they were a little too high. The pattern is made to sit at the natural waist and I like a little lower rise. The waistband is a curved band and really makes this pattern fit even better. These are very simple and clean pants. Straight leg and no pockets. And as an added bonus....the blouse is really cute too! Good luck.
