Aspiring Designers Challenge: Itch to Stitch

Today is day 1 of our March Aspiring Designer's Challenge from the Betties Basket and Promotions Group.  We are always so grateful for the support our group and designers receive from Pattern Revolution.  We hope you will check back daily for new designers, patterns and giveaways!  Don't forget to join our Facebook group for testing opportunities as well as a look at each of our new designers.

As part of the Swhetty Betties Aspiring Designer Challenge, Emily Culottes PDF pattern is released today! I know you will love them as much as I do. Since I created my pair, I have been wearing them all the time. I jumped in and out of my big car with ease, yet I still feel feminine. In fact, depending on the fabric you use, they can be both work and fun appropriate. Now I am dreaming up all the tops that I can sew to go with my culottes.

I always love culottes. I remember when I was 8 or 10, I owned a pink pair. I told my family that I loved them so much because I felt like I was wearing nothing! Needless to say, my family laughed at me for a whole season, but that was the truth. They were so comfortable that I wanted to wear them all the time.

Now I can relive this part of my childhood. The difference is that Emily Culottes are way more sophisticated with these features:
  • Stylish and comfy pants with an A-line skirt silhouette
  • Contoured waistband for a better fit
  • Sits at natural waist to elongate your legs
  • Invisible side zipper for a smooth look
  • Option for slanted single-welt pockets
  • Option for slanted patch pockets with button closure
  • Option for waist tabs with decorative buttons
  • Option for waist tie option

As with any Itch To Stitch patterns, the Emily Culottes pattern detailed instructions and great features:
  • Instructions for lined and unlined culottes
  • Instructions for lengthening/shortening using guidelines
  • Instructions for pleated or non-pleated front
  • Instructions for high-quality finish
  • Twelve sizes (00 to 20)
  • Print only the size(s) you need with the layers feature (no more mingled lines!)
  • Large-format print shop version included

The Emily Culottes pattern wouldn't be possible without my talented testers and editors:
