Child/Baby Fernway Culottes

Twig and Tale

For woodland rambles or skipping along the shoreline, these comfortable, easy-to-wear culottes are ready for play and made to move. Deep, functional pockets provide space for all the day’s little collected treasures. Flowy wide legs, soft front pleats, a contoured, flat-front waistband, and a channeled elastic back create a beautiful fit. Child with sensory issues? We have included an optional yoga-style “sensory waistband” made from soft knit fabric, for extra comfort.
