The pattern comes with plenty of options for whatever makes you happy. I opted for the welt pockets and lining to eliminate the peekaboo factor of the eyelet. I already had some knit fabric for the lining that matched beautifully.
|My lighting is off...which is to be expected I use my phone for pictures. Which is always.|
|I always lean against the wall on my porch; don't you?|
Some of the other options I used were the front pleat and lengthening the culottes. I added five inches to the length so they will be appropriate wherever I go. We're putting in our backyard this year and I look forward to going outside to play with the kids. With the culottes I'll be able to horse around with them while still looking pretty and keeping my underwear covered at all times. And that's to say nothing of the bike rides I have planned for our little family.
|I love the drape and flow of the culottes. It's so feminine and comfortable.|
|I mention summer in the text yet I'm still standing in the snow. In my sandals.|
