Vogue Culottes Part II

So here is my second version of Vogue 9075, this time in a lovely floral waffle cotton, (part I is here)  I made these for a christening (I was a godmother!!) and as per usual finished them the night before. Basically I’m saying I had all best intentions to be careful and thoughtful with all the small details, but ended up rushing as I ran out of time!!

I’m still totally stoked with the results though, I loved wearing it and felt very proud to say I made it.

This time I omitted Vogue’s petite adjustments and applied my own between the bust and shoulder measurement….much better!! It also gave me that extra inch I needed in the crotch.

I love this fabric, it’s from Fabrics Galore and is a soft and light cotton, with a waffle texture (they still have some in store and in some other floral prints too).  I lined the bodice in a plain white cotton lawn and put in an invisible zip (on inspection its a normal zip as its all I had).  I cut a straight size 10 but on reflection I could take it in a bit at the waist, saying that though there was some room there for lunch, so maybe it’s ok after all.

I am not tall but left the length as per the pattern, it’s been awhile since I did the midi length but I’m a convert…..love it (think I need to keep the heels on though).

To finish off the hem I had grand plans to blind hem the legs but as I was rushed for time and there was a lot of fabric in those two legs I just did a regular hem, it does slightly bug me so I might re-do this in the future…. but that might also be a pipe dream!!!
