Another strange week has passed here in the UK, with a terrible fire in a London tower block and the ensuing grief and anger. With all the ups and downs of life, I struggle sometimes to be creative but find thar turning to a simple project helps me focus.
These culottes, from Love Sewing Magazine issue 40, were perfect. I don’t have many summer trousers and our weather has suddenly warmed up. I already had the fabric (from Fabworks in Dewsbury) and so could get started quickly. After some tricky pattern matching in recent makes, using plain fabric was a pleasant change!
I modified the pattern slightly and opted for a single side pocket on the right hand side and an invisible zip in the left side seam. I cut out view D in size 12 but used slightly reduced seam allowances which has resulted in a fit that I’m really happy with.
The resulting clothes are light, comfortable and easy to wear. Watch this space for future variations!
