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.
