I made a pair of wide legged pants in 2017 using my TNT pants pattern. At the time to get the wider legs I wanted I added the extra width by free handing it. This time I decided I wanted to be more specific about adding the space so I used the pants legs from Simplicity 8389.
After laying the two pieces together I realized that they would not give me the extra room I wanted so I ended up adding more to the sides by free handing anyway.
Those were the only changes I made to my TNT pattern construction. I know there are several patterns for sale now that you can purchase to make wide legged pants. I'm just hard pressed to refit a new pattern when I know mine works with a few changes.

my first pair of wide legged pants I made
I plan to add a couple more pairs of wide leg pants to my wardrobe this summer. Because I want easy to wear, comfortable, looks that are age appropriate and simple to throw on in the mornings.
I'm headed to Sew Camp tomorrow so my next posts will be about Sew Camp and traveling to my fabric Disney World - FABRIC MART! I.Can't.Wait!!!
...as always more later!
