For Katina...

Hi Katina! I thought I would give you something visual in response to your request. I made six pairs of the New Look pattern. The girls loved them! The pattern runs a little big. If you pick your size according to the pattern measurements and then make one size smaller, you should be okay. For a better fit on one of the girls, I had to add darts in the back waistband. Like most of the skirts made today, this pattern has a low rise which can easily be adjusted right on the pattern. With a large inverted pleat on each leg, these culottes are very full and were fantastic for horseback riding!


Here's a nice pattern. I cut out view E but I haven't made them yet. This pattern looks full and modest.
