Buy the Gobi Culottes sewing pattern from Itch to Stitch. The Gobi Culottes are unique and a lovely addition to your wardrobe. Made to look like a skirt, but with the convenience of pants, the Gobi has a contour waistband that sits high at your natural waist. Features include front pleats with topstitching, slanted front pockets, and back seams for shaping. The buttoned fly front adds interest, and you can also lengthen the legs to create a longer pair for the fall!
