The Carolina Culottes are the perfect blend of casual comfort and effortless style. Designed with the confident beginner in mind, this pattern features an elasticized back and flat front waistband designed to sit just above your hips. The front pleat adds structure, but also allows more room through the thigh area. Plus, the side pockets are designed to lie flat and not add extra bulk. This pattern features two length variations: pants and shorts. Enjoy making them in different fabrics for different seasons and occasions!
