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 maked the turned-up hems super-chic.
Team these fabulous camera-redy 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.
Sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16-18-20-22-24-26 will need around 2 and 3/4 yards
or 252 cm fabric. You'll also need 1 x 9"/22cm invisible zipper,
plus 1/4 yard/23cm each of lining and fusible interfacing.
All fabric allowances are for 60" or 150cm wide fabrics.
