These started out looking rather different than what you see here. they were going to be high-waisted pants with a normal straight leg. i made them combining two vintage 80s patterns. then i tried them on they just did not work on me at all. i couldnt get happy with them. so i cut them down to sit on my hips, made new waist bands, decided to dye them a better purple colour (the original purple colour was just weird) and after much deliberation and standing in front of the mirror in a million poses decided to taper the legs right in which has left me with some really cool pants (at least i think so). they are now my new favourites. if i make them again i will only have to follow the one 80s pattern which is one i didnt even use in the first place. ha. if you see the last photo of the pattern envelop you will see that while i started out making them like version A but without a wide leg they ended up being like version D which is a different pattern.
p.s they are really comfy and you should probably make yourself some similar.
p.p.s not sure of the fabric but it is a medium weight and it falls nicely.
