Completed Project: Megan Nielsen Tania Culottes
Today I have the Megan Nielsen Tania Culottes to show you. The fabric I decided to use is a blue-grey chambray from Boyes, which is very nice and drapes quite well, but I should have used something a little more slippery for these I think, especially for during winter when wearing tights underneath.
I added six inches onto the length of the culottes as they struck me as being too short, but in the end I chopped 3 inches back off because the longer length made me feel a bit frumpy.
I’m not overwhelmed by these – I wanted to try them but I wasn’t sure if they would suit me. I think the full circle skirt for each thigh, coupled with the short length, makes my thighs appear even wider than they actually are, but then again I didn’t like the longer length either.
They are at least practical – I can see me wearing them more in the summer for trips to the park or the beach – so I can sit cross legged without showing all and sundry my knickers!
