Finished! Tania Culottes!

Can you guess what I've been making?  
Aww it looks like a lovely skirt.

NOPE PANTS! TRICKED YOU!
These are the Tania Culottes by Megan Nielsen.  This is the first pattern I've tried by her and it's just great.  Such a clear, simple pattern to follow, and the way she uses those pleats to hide the crotch is amazing!  This totally looks like a skirt even in action.
My fabric is some kind of cotton/linen suiting.  The only reason I know what it is, is because it doesn't melt under a very hot iron.  And it feels like a natural fibre.
This is me not being very good at invisible zips.  I only had a white one, and I thought "it'll be fine!  It's an invisible zip".  I don't have an invisible zipper foot on my machine so I blame that.  I'm also not too happy with my hem, it went all crinkled.  I can't get the hang of hemming curved things.
The only alteration I made is that I lengthened the skirt about 10cm.  It was super short before!  Apart from that I made a straight XS.
I'd give this pattern two thumbs up! It's extremely comfortable and cute, and I've been wearing it pretty much nonstop.  Totes happy!
