I have learned the hard way too that unisex patterns are designed to fit neither sex. Sort of like one size fits all panty hose. I made a apir of pj's as a Christmas gift in 2004 from a similar pattern (don't have the number tossed it). I made a men's medium and could have fit three people in them. I just made KS3115 for myself and the xl fit like a dream. I used a less stretchy fabric than was recommended. I will go down a size with stretchier fabric and lower the waist an inch or so.

Oh my gosh - way too much fabric. Well, at least you have comfy pants for lounging.

So sorry to hear that the pattern didn't work out. They do look like they'll be good for lounging in. I agree that the camera angel doesn't do them justice. Good luck with the Kwik Sew Yoga pants.
