Pleated Striped Jersey Culottes

Midi/Pleated Culottes – Burdastyle 04/2015 #113 A,B

I loved this 70s fabric with the tri-color stripes and had just enough to make these culottes, but not quite enough length for the variation with the turn-ups’. A few imperfections in my version: different widths of the front pleats, the fly is topstitched on the wrong side, and the placement of the inner pocket bags is a few cms too low. I probably should improve zipper insertion and professional finishes around that area too lol. Otherwise I think this culottes pattern is great. Im glad the pleats have remained accentuated, as this fabric is not the kind that keeps folds or creases. Location: Wynyard Quarter.

Material Notes

70s striped slightly sheer jersey remnant (with width wise stretch only, stripes running vertically), 70s embossed white woven cotton (as waistband facing), piece thick interfacing (for zipper area), black plastic zip, black button (decorative only), trouser hook and bar.
