    I think this pattern is a winner! It is well drafted, the instructions are clear, and the designer also provides a gazillion options/tutorials for hacking! I made mine in view B (just above the knee length) with elastic back hack and slash pockets – the tutorials can be found on Helen’s Closet’s blog. The fabric I used is viscose challis and I used about 1.5m, though for the pocket bags I had to use scrap fabric. The only thing I did differently is the waistband in order to hide the raw edges and avoid zigzag finish. More details on how I did it can be found on my blog https://thefairstitch.com/2019/02/02/winslow-culottes-helens-closet-pattern-review/

    Oh, I also purchased the pattern from The Fold Line. Thank you Kate and Rachel for making it easier for us (me) to get patterns from non UK designers – I don’t like dealing with odd pricing due to conversion rates 😀

    This was a swift, easy and satisfying make with really flattering results. Easy to fit, cut and sew, highly recommended if you like the style. Very fun for swishing about in and showing off vintage-style tops. Read more on my blog: http://norseotter.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/swishy-winslows.html

  3. Winslow culottes

    I really enjoyed this pattern though as it has minimal pieces and I am beginning to love PDF patterns as I don’t have to trace them out and they seem much easier to store than rolled up grease proof paper!

    There are 4 pieces for the ‘legs’ and a waist band, two pockets and a zip. So a nice easy sew really. I’ve never really made trousers before that have looked suitable for wearing outside the house!

    I love these culottes as they were so comfy all day at the wedding, I could dance and move around not worrying about skirts exposure, and they still looked formal enough for the wedding.

    I think I am going to make myself a long pair of these for the summer as the waist band hit me at a really nice ‘high wasted’ point perfect with baggy tops. Made in crepe they will lovely and floaty for the summer too. I think I may experiment in a thinner cotton too for some for work as the shape really suits the shape of my body.

    I really do recommend trying out the Winslow culottes!
