I’m a member of the Minerva Crafts Boggers Network, so every few weeks I get the chance to try out some fabric in exchange for a post which will hopefully inspire some of their customers. My latest make is now live on their website!
A few weeks ago I chose some navy blue viscose, it was described as having a beautiful drape, it looked perfect for a pattern I’ve had for a couple of years, Megan Nielson’s Tanya cullottes. These cullottes hang like a skirt, they are so full. As a result they do take quite a lot of fabric, so this was the perfect opportunity to try the pattern.
They went together beautifully and I love them! They are so comfortable but smart, I love the way the viscose twirls too! I’ve worn the quite a few times. The only thing I need to change is the zip, the pattern calls for a 9″ zip, I had a standard 7″ skirt zip inmy stash, that’ll be long enough, I thought…it wasn’t! After too many wiggles over my bottom it needs changing to a 9″!
