Sew News Como Culottes FREE Sew-Along | 10.1.20 – 12.1.20

Sew a pair of wide-legged, full-length culottes perfect for autumn or spring. Join Kate Zaynard, one of the editors behind Sew News magazine and a host of the Sew & Tell podcast, to learn how in this sew-along.

The Como Culottes offer a cool, modern update to the classic culotte. A flat waistband, inseam pockets and a side zipper create a sleek silhouette while ample, deep pleats and wide legs create drama and volume. Sew up a pair in warm fabrics with ample drape such as lightweight wools, suiting blends, tencel twill, mediumweight linen blends and more.

Follow along with Kate and sew these flowy pants. Start with tips for selecting the right fabric. You’ll sew the classic pleats, insert pockets into the side seams using two different methods. Stitch the pants together, then put an invisible zipper into the left side seam. Finally, finish off the waistband and hem the pants and you’re ready for some fall frolicking!

The Expert

Kate Zaynard is the managing editor of Sew News and Creative Machine Embroidery, as well as a host of the Sew & Tell podcast. She started sewing in college while studying costume design, then spent several years working as a theatrical dresser and stitcher in her hometown. Kate took a break from sewing to become an editor, but was delighted when her two professions collided, allowing her to write and edit stories about one of her favorite things to do. She loves having an excuse to sew for herself instead of for actors, and she takes a great deal of pleasure in sharing her knowledge and experience with other sewists as well as learning new tips and tricks from the experts she’s lucky enough to work with.
