Winnie Culottes workshop



The Winnie Culottes

If you have always wanted to make trousers or worry that you cannot find any to fit, we can help! 

The Winnie Culottes are a wonderful style of easy fitting culottes that work in lots of different types of fabric. They fit on the waist with curved cutaway pockets that include a side button fastening.  They also have patch pockets on the back and a slight barrel shape to the legs which gives them a contemporary feel. 

Joining us for the workshop will enable you to get the perfect fit for your Winnie Culottes, something that can be hard to achieve on your own. Let us help you there so you leave with the perfect pair of culottes and the altered pattern to make them up again at home.
