Emily Culottes Body and Finished Garment Measurements

Choosing Your Size

  1. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part of waist) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your waist best. If you are in between sizes, pick the closest size (e.g. if your waist is 38” (96.5 cm), choose size 18; if your waist is 38 5⁄8”, choose size 20).
  2. Compare your fullest hip measurements to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are in between sizes, pick the smaller size.
  3. It’s OK to use different sizes for the waist and hip. All you have to do is print the sizes that you need (see “Printing Instructions” on page 7), and blend the lines from one size to the next from the waist to the hip.

I highly recommend that you check your fit by making a test garment with inexpensive fabrics that have similar thickness and stretchiness (if your fabric has lycra) as your final garment fabrics.

Material

Primary fabric Any medium or bottom weight woven fabric with or without stretch would work with this pattern. Cotton, broadcloth, poplin, twill, denim, linen, linen blend, wool, wool blend, suiting and crepe are all good choices. User lighter-weight fabric for the waist tie option. Fabric with different level of drape will create different looks. Stable fabric is preferable. Unstable knit fabrics, like jersey, are not recommended. However, you could use very stable knit such as medium weight double knit. You should go down a size when you use a stable knit fabric or fabric with stretch.

Lining The lining fabric should have similar quality as the primary fabric, i.e. if the primary fabric has stretch, a lining with stretch should be used. Acetate, Ambiance by Bemberg, batiste, lawn, pima cotton, china silk, silk crepe de chine or silk georgette are all good choices as non-stretch lining fabric. Even if you choose not to line the culottes, you will still need some lining fabric for the pocket options.

Interfacing Light to medium weight fusible interfacing is recommended unless the fabric is very delicate, in which case sew-in interfacing, such as silk organza, should be used. Choose very light-weight interfacing for the waist tie option.

Other Materials

  • 7” (18 cm) invisible zipper
  • One set of size 1 hook and eye
  • 1/8” (0.3 cm)-wide twill tape or fabric selvage as long as your waist (or your desired waist length) for stabilization
  • Four 1” (2.5 cm) buttons for waist tab option
  • Two 3/4” (1.9 cm) buttons for patch pocket option

Tools

  • Invisible zipper foot
  • Regular zipper foot
  • Buttonhole foot
  • Serger machine (optional to finish your seam allowances)

Fabric Requirements

Most natural fibers shrink in the wash, be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk. If you are lengthening your Emily Culottes, your additional primary fabric requirement will be twice as much as your added length. For example, if you add 5” (13 cm) to your length, you will need an additional 10” (26 cm) of fabric. However, if you are using 44” (115 cm) wide fabric and are size 8 or above, you will need four times as much as your added length. For example, if you add 5” (13 cm) to your length, you will need an additional 20” (52 cm) of fabric.

    A great and versatile pattern designed with love for details. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The fit was spot on and my culottes are very comfortable to wear. I love the contoured waistband.

    I LOVE this pattern! The directions and diagrams are clear to understand. I also love the tips along the way. The resulting culottes are extremely flattering and very comfortable… mine wear very much like a dramatic a-line skirt (love that!). I definitely plan on making a few more! I am pretty picky when it comes to buying online patterns from indie designers, and Itch-to-Stitch has created another fantastic design that is very well drafted and spot on with ready-to-wear and the runway.

    I just LOVE this pattern! The instructions are very clear, the sizing is good, and with the sewing techniques are professional. My culottes turned out very well. I’m hard to please when it comes to digital patterns. The Emily culottes are a great pattern that I will be making more times.
