Koerbs Bros Stitch Designs just released their latest pattern, the Carrie Culottes, which are on sale right now for $7.50 (USD) and you can also use coupon code “Mom25” to get 25% off anything else in the store all weekend!
Carrie Culottes are named after Carrie from Sex in the City, and they are a pattern for pleated wide leg shorts meant for either stretch wovens or knits. There are two waistband options, one with an elastic inside, and one with a zipper at the side. There are also front pockets, so you don’t have to be without your phone this summer.
The culottes come in two lengths – mini, and midi. I cut mine 2″ shorter than the midi for a just-above-the-knee look. I made this pair a slinky polyester knit, using the yoga waistband and non-roll elastic. I omitted the pockets because my fabric was so lightweight.
Culottes are a cross between shorts and and a skirt, and these ones have pleats to keep them fitted through the hip and thigh and flare out around the leg.
