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!
