The Ultimate Culottes are a simple pair of flattering, oh-so-easy-to-sew wide-legged cropped trousers. Whether you pair them with flats to channel Audrey, or dress them up with heels for a night out, the Ultimate Culottes are super stylish and endlessly wearable. They even look good over tights for nippy winter weather!
The Ultimate Culottes are designed to sit on the natural waist, and come with two finishing options. Version 1 has a waistband with lovely wide belt loops, whilst Version 2 is finished invisibly with a neat facing. Both options feature single darts at the front and double darts at the back for shaping, with an invisible zip in the side seam.
Fitted only at the waist, the Ultimate Culottes are a great pattern for those new to trouser-sewing. They make a lovely quick afternoon project, and with such a customisable design, once you’ve made one pair there’s so much scope to have fun with the pattern. They are easily shortened into shorts, or lengthened into palazzo pants to suit your style.
