I needed some comfortable pants for around the home, and I’ve always wondered how this design would fit. I am happy to say that they are very comfortable!!! The waist sits at my natural waist. I did not put in the front fly/zipper, as the fabric has enough stretch. There is a wide yoke in the front and the back. The yoke is faced with the same fabric, so essentially it is a double yoke that gives the pants firmness around the tummy without being uncomfortable. I substituted 1.5” (3.8cm) wide elastic that I had, and inserted into the casing at the top of the yoke, which is between the yokes. The front pockets are at the bottom edge of the yoke, and are nice and deep. The length was long, so I just eliminated the hem allowance. As all my tops have a pattern, I had to dig out one of my office blouses for the photos…..
