How to make pattern to copy favorite pair of sweatpants or jammies

I recently made some pants, using my favorite yoga pants- LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I did make a few small changes, but because I wanted a slightly different fit, not because this tutorial didn't work for me

Changes I made were:
- no seam allowance added in the crotch area
- small seam allowance at the rise/waist
- widened legs a few inches

I found the fit to be awesome. With using no seam allowance in the crotch and widening the legs, they still fit great and don't pull any where OR bubble out to give the diaper wearing look.

Great idea, thanks so much for sharing !!

I don't understand one thing. Normally, when sewing any pants, the front leg differs from the back. Here you are copying pants without caring about that. Isn't there any difference in oryginal pants?
