Like many other Vancouverites, I ride my bike to work. It’s a quick 15 minute ride, and there is an awesome bike route close to my apartment! I ride alongside loads of other cyclists and there is a huge range of cycle style out there. From full spandex body suits to high heeled shoes, anything goes when it comes to biking attire in this city. I like to ride in my work clothes so I don’t have to change when I arrive. Sometimes I change my shoes, but other than that, I like to be ready to go. My upcoming pattern, the Winslow culottes, have become a staple in my work wardrobe, because I can comfortably ride in them! They look polished and professional while still being comfy for commuting and sitting at my desk.
This version of the Winslow Culottes is view B and is made from tencel suiting. The fabric has an almost suede-like quality to it, it is really soft and has great drape. If you haven’t sewn with tencel before, you should give it a try! It is one of those truly magic fabrics!
Tencel or lyocell is a sustainable fabric, regenerated from wood pulp. It is similar in hand to rayon and bamboo, both regenerated fabrics. Tencel is one of the most environmentally friendly regenerated fabrics. – EcoMail
View B of the Winslow Culottes sits just above the knee. This length looks nice with bare legs or tights, making it great for all seasons! In a lightweight wool, the Winslow Culottes would make fantastic fall and winter wear. The pleats in the design really steal the show in a solid colour, creating a flattering, hourglass shape.
I hope you like view B of the Winslow Culottes, they have been a huge hit with my testers. You can check them out by searching #winslowculottes on instagram! I can’t wait to show you more versions 🙂
The Winslow Culottes will be available at the end of June, thank you for letting me share them with you prior to the release!
