Unusual Length

Lengthwise, let’s just say that it’s a little awkward.

Colourwise, yes.

Lengthwise, let’s just say that it’s a little awkward.

I wasn’t quite expecting the hem to fall right smack in the middle of my calves.

I had no idea how to make the culottes look more flattering but I kept them on anyway as I was experiencing withdrawal symptoms from my shopping ban. It’s currently classified as work in progress until I find the best way to rock them.

All hope is not lost (yet) as spring and summer is quickly approaching. Hopefully pairing them with beautiful sandals (lace-up maybe?) would be an effective remedy to what I would call an unusual length in the world of fashion.

  1. I don’t know if culottes are for adults. I don’t know if I’m qualified to make that call. I would say either let the hem out some or shorten them to about 3″ below the knee?

    1. Hey Brandy thanks for your suggestion 🙂 I think I would be more comfortable letting the hem out (I think that would look a little more flattering) and would probably do so once I completed my 2 beginners sewing workshop! 🙂

    1. Hi Maria, I’m leaning towards letting the hem out but who knows, I might grow to like that length after awhile… 😉

Jot down your thoughts!
