My goal this month is to make myself some culottes! I’ve had the pattern for a couple of weeks now, but it keeps getting pushed aside by other projects. Oh, and I was so sad — only about a week after I bought the paper pattern, it was finally released as a pdf pattern! I would rather have bought it as a pdf cause I like the security of knowing I’ll never lose it. Shucks!

I have the pattern pieces traced and cut out, so all I have to do is cut my fabric and sew. Since I bought jersey instead of a woven fabric, I read that I can leave off the zipper and just sew in some elastic. I also bought some wooly nylon thread for my serger, so I’m excited to try out a couple of new things. I hope my culottes turn out okay — right now, I’ve only got two pairs of shorts!
