I am in dire need of some reversible pants instructions, I know it is probably something really easy and I will kick myself when I figure it out. But I have been trying all day to make a pair of reversible pants and can't figure it out. Help!

What about making two pairs of pants and sewing them together when you do the waistband (elastic I'm guessing?)  Hem each pair of pants before you sew them together, and then if it's for a girl you could always add some ric rac or whatever at the bottom too.

I usually hem mine together instead of hemming each side separately.  So I make each set of pants and then with the right sides together, with one set of pants inside the other, I sew them together at the hem and at the top of the waistband, leaving a gap for turning.  Then, like you do with a lined bag, pull them right sides out through the gap.  Once you get both right sides out fold them at the waistband and tuck one set of pants inside the other, like lining.  Sew the bottom of the waistband casing, run the elastic through and finish off the gap in the top of the waistband.  Not sure if all that was clear, but I hope it helps.
