Winslow Culottes Tester Roundup 2

Thanks so much to everyone who has supported the new size range for the Winslow Culottes! We are officially halfway to updating all of our patterns to the updated size range. We are so grateful for the wonderful testers whose Winslow photos are featured in this post! These star sewists helped test the updated version of Winslow to make sure it was up to snuff. They volunteered their time and supplies to test Winslow. They are all wonderful and you should go follow them!

“Pants patterns have always scared me, but these were a breeze to sew up. It was my first attempt at box pleats and Helen made them seem so easy. The Winslows have easy to follow directions and is an easy to assemble pattern…A+ all around.”

“These are fun to make and definitely have that twirl factor. I feel fancy when I wear then but I’m also comfortable. Perfect combination. This pattern also allowed me to practice a new skill – inserting an invisible zipper.”


“This pattern was so fun to sew! Very straightforward with amazing instructions as per usual. I want to make ALL THE PAIRS OF WINSLOWS!!”


“These shorts are AWESOME! I don’t usually wear shorts, but these wide legs are perfect for shorts that don’t ride up. Even though I measure between a 26 and 30 going by my waist, I could easily wear a 26 to keep the waist from sliding up or down. The box pleats give my small rear a boost of volume and the pockets are just right! I definitely look forward to making another pair in another length!”

“I love the Winslow. I’m planning my next version already! I’m so happy to have found a pattern for wide legged culottes that actually fit great even for the upper sizes.”


“I am really pleased, I was excitedly waiting for this in the new sizes and was right that it would be an instant staple for me. I am a happy camper. I will definitely be making more Winslows to pair with cropped tops. That’s a first! I have to say it is a consistent perk of the three Helen’s Closet patterns that I have tried that the instructions are incredibly simple and easy to follow, easy to realize your vision. The results being a fully realized effortless feeling & very wearable garment. Well done, again! This is my year of ease so that alone is invaluable to me.”

Thanks so much for reading about our incredible pattern testers and their Winslow Culottes!
