THE AVID SEAMSTRESS • The Culottes Sewing Pattern
The Culottes provide the ultimate middle ground between skirts and trousers; all the swish factor of a skirt with the practicality of trousers. The Culottes are edgy, versatile and a wardrobe staple suitable for all seasons.
The Culottes by The Avid Seamstress feature a pleated detail, large inseam pockets (designed to sit flat and not interrupt the silhouette), a fitted waistband, a concealed zipper at the back and a wide hem. Fancy going full length? Use the lengthen lines included and create yourself a gorgeous pair of trousers.
