FIND YOUR SIZE
The trousers have a relaxed fit, positioned at lower waist, so use your (lower) waist and seat measurement for sizing.
If you wish to adjust the relaxed waist you can choose to add more or less elastic tape. Just remember that the waist has to be wide enough to be pulled over your seat when putting the trousers on.
You can easily shorten or lengthen the pattern, make the adjustment at knee height.

I reach for one of my pairs almost every day because they're just so comfortable. I chose my size based on my hip measurements and only had to take in the elastic for the waistband (by quite a lot). I did shorten the crotch because I don't like the drop crotch as drafted, and lengthened the legs to suit my height. I think my versions ended up at more or less the intended 7/8 length, which I like.
These are great trousers because they are very versatile. Depending on the fabric you use and how you accessorize them, you can end up with something you can wear to work or something you can go camping in. Very comfortable and contemporary. The cuff elastics are a little tricky to attach as you have to stretch them as you sew and you could do with a third arm to hold your machine in place but it's all worth it. The pockets are large and comfortable. The rectangular stitching on the front section of the waist elastic is a nice detail and makes it lie flat on your stomach. I made 2 pairs so far and getting ready for a third, winter-y one.
Excellent pattern - clear and easy to follow. These would work in a wide range of materials and can be casual or formal for year round wardrobe staples. The pockets look beautifully tailored. My first foray into trouser making and if anything these were generously sized. I didn't do the cuffs on the bottom but extended the leg and it worked well. I will definitely be making more but tweaking seam allowance/ grading sizes. These would make wonderful pajama bottoms too!
