The Winslow Culottes came to be last February when I was preparing for an impromptu trip to Mexico. Sam’s parents were living the RV life and invited us down to camp with them on a beach in the Baja for a week. Naturally, we said yes and I immediately started sewing up a storm, trying to fill some holes in my summer wardrobe. I really wanted a long, flowy skirt but wasn’t sure how practical that would be. We were gonna be roughing it in a tent and spending most of our time hiking in the desert and wandering the beach. After browsing pinterest I realized what I should make is wide-legged culottes! They would be perfect for walking around because they wouldn’t touch the ground, but they would still protect my legs from the sun and offer plenty of ease of movement. I also loved the idea of creating the illusion of a skirt, so the design for the Winslow culottes was born!
After receiving so much positive feedback on the idea of a pattern for my culottes, I decided to give it a go! I perfected the design by adding inseam pockets and including different length variations. The Winslow Culottes really span a wide range of looks when made in different fabrics, it has been super fun testing them out!
The Winslow Culottes are 20% off this week!
Here are some of the images that sparked my imagination. I love how effortless and chic culottes look in neutral fabrics. On the other side of the spectrum, how amazingly dramatic they look in bold prints or at full length. The shorts versions are so fun and flirty, and at knee length they are a clear wardrobe staple.
