Thanks so much to everyone who followed along with the Winslow Culottes Sewalong! It has been so great seeing your Winslows on instagram and I am so happy to hear all the kind reviews. I really enjoyed doing the sewalong and I hope you did too!
For the sewalong version, I made view A, and added 2” in length to make them the ideal length for my height (5’9.5”). I used a slubby tencel denim from Blackbird fabrics (now back in stock!), which has the perfect drape for this pattern. I love this blue denim colour too, it is so easy to style!
Because I was shooting pictures of every step during the sewalong, I was really forced to slow down and take my time with this project. I wanted everything to look perfect because I’d be embarrassed to show off wobbly topstitching or imperfect seams in my sewalong, even though I often let these things go when I’m sewing for pleasure. As Heather Lou said the other day, “put down the seam ripper”, and I am in agreement with this mantra. That said, being forced to slow down and really focus on each step made for a very well sewn garment!
I love they way this tencel denim drapes and also holds it’s shape. I made an Archer Shirt using the light blue colour-way and it holds its shape nicely, too. I still have so much of this tencel in my stash, and I am hoarding it for special projects like this 🙂
Thanks again for following along with the Winslow Culottes Sewalong! If you didn’t get a chance to sew with me, that’s OK! You can still refer back to the sewalong posts and make the perfect culottes for summer.
Check out these Winslows for some extra inspiration!
Love, love, love my new Winslow culottes! I kept seeing these pop up in my feed and everyone looked great in them. This is a quick sew. The only thing I would have done differently is to cut a thinner fabric for my pockets since the self fabric interferes with the drape of the pleats. I had to include the outtake since my photographer was having way too much fun! #winslowculottes
