Vogue 9091 view B. I should say that I have very specifically included which view I made because I made a muslin of view C and it was pretty awful on me. It would probably work for someone who hasn't had two children and is still toned in the lower abdomen but for me, no way. The reason I like view B is because the pleating in the front lies down well and is smoothing for that area. I sewed a size 12, for reference my hips measure 39 inches and my waist 29. The waistband is snug, but not uncomfortable at all. One change I made was to attach the waistband to the culottes with a 3/8 inch seam allowance. I just wanted a smidge more height on them. The hips are loose so with sizing there is wiggle room there. Pattern went together fine, no problems with pieces lining up or strange directions.

|Can you spot the kid? In fact there are two kids here- find them?|
So there you go, another work appropriate outfit to put into rotation this summer. This will not be my last pair of culottes, I'm a convert to them! Anyone else out there coming over to the culotte dark side??
