Culottes, one of the most trendy styles of the 50's and 60's, are back! Culottes are flared pants or shorts that can often look like a skirt or a dress when you're wearing them. I have been trying to help you build a warm weather wardrobe that is both easy and practical --and that is easy to make. Here is another free pattern to add to your collection of projects for the summer. There are two things I really like about this culottes tutorial and pattern --there is a option of adding front pockets to the pants without adding bulk to the tummy and you can easily transform them into long pants by adding length at the hem. My choice of fabric is Jacquard Knit. This pattern is for knits only and comes in sizes 6 to 22. The finished garment measurements are printed on the pattern.
