The Maple Culottes – Free Sewing Pattern – Mood Sewciety

The ultimate feminist fashion item, first gaining momentum in the 1500s, and then again in the Victorian era — culottes are an article of clothing that afforded women the freedom to play sports and live their most active lives without the restraint of a skirt or dress. Plus, they’re airy, versatile, and they fall somewhere in between “work casual” and “oh, just on a stroll for a cup of coffee from the cafe down the block.” They’re a perfect summer-into-fall transition item. Our Maple Culottes are made with a super wool suiting, however, these can definitely be made out of a variety of fabrics. Try a silk charmeuse for evening wear paired with a long blazer or 4 ply crepe paired with a lacy top for fancier occasions such as weddings instead of a skirt. The possibilities are so very endless.
