big baby blue culottes


Hi!
The other day, I sewed a pair of culottes from a new pattern and I really liked the result. I wore it on the next day and asked my husband to take some pictures of happy me in them, and what I found was that all pictures were out of focus. A very typical happy story...

The pattern is Shamrock from Tamanegi-kobo. These wide culottes have an elastic waistband and they were easy to sew. I think I'll make more pairs in the future!

The only alteration I had was for the back pockets. I added a pair of big patch pockets under the original mock flaps to make them less mock.

Have a great month, dear sewists!

love,
yoshimi

the cocktail was good anyway

  3. These are awesome! I used to be very against culottes, but yours and another I've seen recently at Lily Sage & Co. blog, have really changed my mind. Your whole outfit is just perfect!

  6. They're beautiful and they suit you. The colour is gorgeous – very cooling for spring and summer. What type of fabric did you use for these? I like the way they fall.
    Thanks

    1. Thank you Barbara for your comment! The fabric was ... well, it was one of the mystery fabrics. It looked something like a cotton/rayon tweed, but I am not sure. I got it from a jumble sale that was organized by indie designers and small clothing companies.

    2. Oh yes, those mysterious "unknown" fabrics that sometimes work out really well, as did this project.

  8. They are absolutely fabulous! I love the shape, colour and styling with that crop top. They look wonderful on you. I made my own culottes a few weeks ago and LOVE them. I definitely need more in my wardrobe this year.

  9. They are lovely and somehow look so elegant on you. I am sure I would look weird in culottes, and not very classy. But maybe I should try with your image and example in mind :-)

  14. only you could make culottes outrageously chic.

    i just went through the same thing with my husband. i think we should send all of our photographers to a point & shoot retreat.

    I'd like to sew a similar one, but my sewing experience and japanese isn't good enough, i think :(
