There's something so effortless about culottes - they are a perfect wardrobe staple to go throughout the seasons (especially if they are made from vintage kimonos! teehee)
I started to create them as I wanted another alternative to my long maxi skirts & after making a few pair of culotte shorts - I thought why not just extend the length, lo & behold I feel in love with them. For the culottes above, I used the kimono below.

From culottes came playsuits - I loved having maxi culotte playsuits as an alternative to my long maxi frocks. It just felt a little bit less formal than my maxi frocks when I had evening events to attend but didn't want to dress up to the nines. Also the perfect way to go from fun afternoon events to cocktail sessions at night. ^_^
