Skinny trousers made Bigger

I've seen numerous post about making trousers tighter but I wanted to go in the opposite direction and use these 2 pairs to make one bigger pair.

Both trousers were quite stretchy and meant to be worn tight but that style is not for me.

I cut a strip out of the plain black pair, right up the side seam, waistband and all, and inserted it into the patterned pair to take them up a size and make them less skinny.

The method was very quick and easy and I was pleased with the result.  I even learned something new about my sewing machine in the process.

There are more details and photos here

The stretchiness makes them super comfy.
