Finally found a pants pattern that I think may work for me. But legs are "boot" or flared, and wonder if they could be changed to straight without major changes.

Thank you

Of course- just make them the size you want. Measure a pair of pants you really like and adapt the pattern from there.

I recut the legs on the Thurlow pattern into a narrower bootcut, by overlaying a Jalie pattern. Just line up the vertical centers of your patterns to make sure the leg is balanced from the knee down.
