Now that my sewing area is accessible, I have been able to start sewing again. I was thinking it'd be fun to make some blouses, but when I went through my closet, it was clear I really needed pants more than tops. I have a large stack of pants that "don't quite fit". ;-) This was the incentive I needed to work on making a PMB pants pattern that fits.
I had made a pair of shorts last summer, and they were wearable but a bit "wedgie" in the back. In comparing pants styles, I noticed that the Trouser version had more crotch horizontal extension than either the Slacks or Jeans versions (which I had used for the shorts), so decided I would try that. I'm happy to report that I now have two pairs of wearable slacks. Are they perfect, no, but they are a step in the right direction.

Have you thought about drafting a rightt side and left side for your pants I wonder how that would work?

I would be happy to help you with the basic fitting pants so you don't have to just guess at changes.

It occurred to me to that I could make L/R versions, but that is not something I want to tackle right now. LOL.

Karen, Sure, I'd be willing to work with you on the fit, though tinkering is fun, too ;-) These are based on my original sloper. Let me know if you want to revisit that or what our next step is.
