Buy the Heron Culottes sewing pattern from Afternoon Patterns. They are high-waisted, wide leg trousers with a classic silhouette. Make them up in a floaty rayon challis or cool linen for summer, or go bold with a more structured fabric to make the most of the volume in the leg. The Heron Culottes feature inverted box pleats in the front, a deep side seam pocket and a button closure on the waistband.
