We’re very excited to introduce a brand new pattern to our Ultimates collection today.
Joining the Ultimate Shift, Wrap, Pencil Skirt, Trousers and of course PJs, please welcome the Ultimate Culottes!
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.
Like the rest of our Ultimates patterns, they are designed to be the quintessential culottes – what culottes should be at their core. Flattering, stylish, perfect for day-to-day and with a great fit, we think these really are the ultimate!
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.
Brilliantly versatile, the Ultimate Culottes can be made in loads of different fabrics. You’re looking for a woven fabric with some drape – but whether you choose rayon, crepe, linen, viscose linen, suitings, lightweight wools and more is up to you. They’ll even work in plisse and velvet if you’re after a super on-trend look.
