I found that some $1.50 laundry bags (unused or washed) can be a great source of fabric. I stand at 5'5" and this just about my pant length. The zippers are from another upcycle but I took my other cargo pants, fold them in half length wise and use that as my pattern. For me, the difficult part was the zipper flap and instead of using a button at the waist, I used a piece of velcro.

Oh, I also stenciled the gray strips onto the turtle neck sleeves. I love the end look.
