So – culottes. Oh gosh, I thought we got over these years ago. But no. They’re everywhere, at least on pattern and fashion sites. Strange though, I haven’t seen them on anyone around town. hmmm
I’m game. But rather than buy a new pattern, I pulled out one I own, but just couldn’t love enough to sew…a Marcy Tilton pant with some pretty funky ankle treatments.
- Sewed size 14, my usual Vogue size.
- Seam allowances used: 1/2″ side and waist seam, 5/8″ in the crotch.
- Because the pattern is somewhat short in the rise, I added a waistband. I cut the band at 3″ x 42″ across grain, fitted it to the pants, and used 1″ braid elastic
- The finished side seam measures 31″ from the bottom of the waistband.
