could you afford to get them shortened? That way you aren't limited to petite ranges. Its annoying but I do this sometimes as at 5'1 even petite trousers are sometimes too long so if I find jeans that are otherwise a good fit I pay the £12 more it costs me to get them professionally done.
I am not dis-similar size/height and my best work trousers come from Vieyella Petite. I know it is an old fashioned brand but the trousers fit well and are better quality than many polyester rich trousers so I'm happy. They're half lined too. Vieyella trousers. I can't find them on offer at the moment but they often are and have lots of sales.
Bon Marche are quite old-fashioned but they have bought the Ann Harvey brand from Alexon so now make lots of stuff in larger sizes and are ok for classic stuff like work pants. They do a lot of stuff in different leg lengths
