Macy's carries a brand called Green Dog that makes them sizes 8 - 20.
Here's what I do with my son's elastic-bottom pants: cut off the elastic cuff; hem the pant legs with a sewing machine. Wrinkles from the elastic should smooth out in the wash, or iron if that doesn't work. Make sure the pant legs are long enough, though!
