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.

Sewing Level

Fabric Suggestions

For the Ultimate Culottes you’ll need a light to medium weight woven fabric, ideally with a good amount of drape. We recommend crepe (double and triple crepe in particular), suiting, lightweight wool, peachskin, rayon, linen and viscose linen. You could also try a plisse or lightweight velvet for a super on-trend look. With minimal interruptions, there’s lots of opportunity to make a statement with a bold print, yet they also look striking and classic in a solid colour.

What is a PDF pattern?

A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper.

Choose to add on A0 printing and we will print the pattern on our A0 printers and post it to you so all you need to access digitally is the instruction booklet.

If you're using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.

Is this sewing pattern layered?

Yes! This pattern is layered so you can print off just the size(s) that you need. Find out more about layering here.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
