The elegance of a skirt with the practicality of a
pant? Yes please...we’ll be making these
culottes in firm pant or bottom-weight woven
fabrics like heavy crepe, linen, gabardine,
tencel, sateen, classic wool or wool blend
suitings, or even a soft, mid-weight denim.
Wide-leg, mid-calf length culottes have a
semi-tailored fit, with a center-back zipper, a
grown-on & self-faced waist, plus double darts
at the back for a superior fit. Fronts feature
angled pockets and a deep pleat, stitched
down to the waist for a flattering silhouette; we
recommend pressing in a center front & back
crease to make the turned-up hems super-chic.
Team these fabulous camera-ready culottes
with a matching blazer, moto or bomber jacket
for a modern take on the classic pants suit; try
them with a boxy or slouchy top worn untucked
over the waist; or tuck in a pretty blouse and
add a waistcoat for a dressed-up boho look.
For all sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26
you’ll need around 2 3/4 yards/252cm of fabric.
You’ll also need 1 x 9”/22cm invisible zipper,
plus 1/4 yard/ 23cm each of lining and fusible
All fabric amounts are for 60”/150cm wide fabric.
So happy to have found this pattern. I love the super wide leg and those big pleats.
Awesome styling. Made these in linen, denim and silk. How’s that for versatility
