The Ninni Culottes, sewn in a crinkly striped linen are a summer wardrobe staple. Dress them up or down, these bottoms will help keep you cool in the summer heat and humidity. The pants are simple to sew, feature a wide leg and side seam pockets.
Pattern sized to fit:
Waist - 23.5" - 46.5"
Hip - 33" - 56"
You can see the full size chart here.
Note on sizing: These are very roomy pants, so some may want to size down. The hip measurement is the most important one for sizing. You can always add more room in the tummy by adding length to the front rise.
Shop owner Deren is wearing the Ninni Culottes sewn in our Athena Stripe Linen in the color Camel. She paired her culottes with a cute boxy Laurence Top sewn in Cairo Linen. We are happy to print the Laurence Top pattern for you.
Deren's sizing information:
Deren is 5' 1" tall and is wearing the size 8 which have been shortened by 3". Deren's hip measurement falls between the size 6 and 8 but her waist measurement is larger than the size 8. Deren's Laurence Top is a size 8 to fit her 36" bust.
Note on sewing with crinkly linen.
This linen will seize up a lot when washed and dried, so the crinkles are very tight. We recommend ironing lightly before cutting your pattern pieces, especially along the edges. The garment will crinkle up a bunch when washed but the crinkles relax a good bit with wear.
