Buy the Emily Culottes sewing pattern from Itch to Stitch. The Emily Culottes look like an A-line skirt, but are actually super comfy pants. They sit at the natural waist with a contoured waistband and invisible side zipper. Optional features include slanted single-welt pockets, slanted patch pockets with button closures, waist tabs with decorative buttons, and a waist tie. Adjust the length at the lengthen/shorten lines to suit your preference. The culottes can be made with or without a lining.

Suggested fabrics:

Primary fabric: Use medium weight or bottom weight woven fabric with or without stretch. Cotton, broadcloth, poplin, twill, denim, linen, linen blend, wool, wool blend, suiting and crepe are all good choices. Use lighter weight fabric for the waist tie option. Fabrics with different amounts of drape will create different looks. Stable fabric is preferable. Unstable knit fabrics, like jersey, are not recommended. However, you could use a very stable knit such as medium weight double knit. You should go down a size when you use a stable knit fabric or fabric with stretch.

Lining: Use lining fabric with a similar quality to the primary fabric, i.e. if the primary fabric has stretch, a lining with stretch should be used. Acetate, Ambiance by Bemberg, batiste, lawn, pima cotton, china silk, silk crepe de chine and silk georgette are all good choices as non-stretch lining fabric. Even if you choose not to line your culottes, you will still need some lining fabric for the pocket options.

Fabric requirements: See image gallery.
