Green culottes

IMG_1079 These culottes were made using Vogue ‘American Designer Perry Ellis’ 2808 pattern. I’m not sure where this pattern came from, perhaps from an old family friend. The material was from my sister.

IMG_1081I made the waistband piece to measure as I’m always bigger in the waist that the pattern allows for. I thought this may result in having to make adjustments on the pant top, but it didn’t. This pattern has no zipper, you get into the garment using the opening above one of the pockets, and the waist then fastens with trouser clips. This pattern takes acres of fabric.
