Just when I think I'm the foremost modern-era champion of home-sewn culottes, turns out that I've got company. Moreover, Lauriana, great sewist and blogger, is also pattern drafter who has designed her own culottes - a pattern which she has graciously shared with her readers.
I'm happy to know that culottes can look chic as anything on some of us! It gives me hope.
And while we're on the topic of bloggers who design patterns, my girl Suzy (the inspiration for my mad impulse to knit - which will return soon, I assure you) has embarked on a new career path:
Right now she's looking for some pattern testers but soon she'll be showing us her new designs.
Never a dull moment.
