Hooray for wrap pants!  These are impossible to find in stores!  I'm going to try it out!  but I haven't used a pattern before and I can't quite picture it in my mind  Undecided   which measurement would you extend to make long pants?  Huh  Thank You!

You would extend the shorter side of the pants.  Because they're wrap pants the waist appears to be REALLY wide, but it's not really.

You did a great job.  Those pants look so comfy!  It makes me think of a relaxing walk on the beach.

yes... extend the shorter side as the pp said... also if you are curvy like me extend the longer side a bit also... The ones that I made I used the length from hip to floor and I used Fabric that was 60" wide for the waist....

Thanks, I was going to ask if you made the part for the waist longer than 50".  You answered my question. Awsome job.

paxye, thanks for sharing this  Smiley I look at the pattern a few days ago and dismissed it as not curve friendly but you changed my mind. Your tie pants looks great!!
Spring has sprung here and none of last years clothes fasten ( my Beloved is a fantastic cook LOL )  I haven't made anything other than underthings for myself in a while now, I think I'll have to give these a go
