HELENA CULOTTES – Sewing Pattern

sewing pattern 1950's culottes



UK10 – BUST: 89cm | WAIST: 68cm | HIP: 92cm


This culotte sewing pattern is yet another modern take on the 1950’s high-waisted, button-front, style. They look fantastic on, but you’ve got to have the right shape! These culottes were tailor made for friend who loved the 1950’s look and they are made to her specific measurements. So unless you are very lucky and they fit you perfectly – you will need to alter this pattern. I recommend making a toile in calico and reducing or enlarging your pattern around the Hip waist and rib cage to create a tailored fit. I suggest using a structural material such as cotton drill denim to get a really supportive fit and a sharp edgy culotte leg.
good luck, It’s tricky a pattern – but well worth it!


Please be aware this pattern is free and does not come with an instruction set or any graded size other than a standard UK10.
