Skirt aka Pants :-)

Very universal, practical and comfortable item for a summer wardrobe. I made mine form the fabric with floral print and it turned out to pair so greatly with so many items in my wardrobe that I can only be surprised how it was possible to live without them!;-))
I like my culottes very much indeed. For these pictures I combined the pants with a jacket from one of my previous projects.
A couple of tricks for making pockets and all the variants for pairing the pants you can see
here .
I also made the earrings which are a good match for all the items in this “collection” :-))

Material Notes

I used rayon (viscose) staple, my ideal summer fabric this year, which I bought on sale last winter… It had some defect but I could cut the pants without using the harmed part. In my opinion thin and well-draping fabrics for this pattern are the best choice.




Summer, Spring
Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Romantic
Cotton, Blends, Knits/Jersey, Rayon, Satin

    Як гарно! Особливо сподобалася ця спідніця-штани з червоним топом.

      Дуже дякую, а мені не знаю, який варіант більше подобається, в люди поки що одягала лише з малиновим:-)

    Looking good! Love the culottes and the jacket looks really great with them. Thanks for the tips for inseam pockets – I’ve not been happy with Burda’s instructions for creating them and I top-stitched after construction on my last project (not posted yet). Your method looks much better.

      Thank you for the nice comment. I like to be useful, if my advices help anybody, it is a great pleasure for me. There are often some details which are not mentioned in instructions.

    These pants are the greatest addition to your amazing collection of handmade clothes. I wish I had 1-2 meters of this floral fabric! I also wish I could make such beautiful earrings! Another inspiring project from you dear Oksana!

      Thank you, Mary, very much. I like the idea to complete the outfits with own jewelry, it became a good extra skill for me:-)
