Easy and Fun: Rebecca Page's Women's Culottes
Do you love how feminine skirts look? And do you love the ease of sewing a good leggings pattern? The new Culottes pattern by Rebecca Page has the ease of sewing up a quick pair of leggings and the beauty of a dress, but it's even easier to wear!
This is the mid-calf length (I am 5'3.5", and I didn't shorten). I chose to make it in a black modal spandex that I got from Sly Fox Fabrics. This fabric is everything!! Gorgeously-drapey and lightweight enough for summer. I did need to add enclosed elastic to the waistband for the culottes to stay up, but they are perfect for an afternoon summer stroll around downtown or a fancy date-night in the evening. I will get a lot of use out of these ones.
Sewing it up:
I meant it when I said these ones are as easy as a pair of leggings. And they're constructed almost the same way. Sew the inseam and outseam. Put one leg inside the other and sew up the crotch. Sew the straight side of the waistband together, quarter it, and put it on the pants. Then you hem. Plus, they have optional pockets. Which makes them even more awesome!!
If you're looking for a super-quick sew that will give you a summer wardrobe staple, look no further. Rebecca Page's Women's Culottes is it!!
