New Look 6459 Take Two




I am playing blogging catch up today and just in time I have come to the end of my 2016 makes.  There is one more that I have forgotten about but this will need to wait for the new year.  

I hinted the other day that there would be more culottes made using New Look 6459 so here is version two.  

I initially visited Spotlight with the intention of making my second version in Linen but couldn't find a weight and colour that I liked so ended up walking away with something completely different which often happens.  


The fabric I chose is a lovely light weight suiting fabric in the most lovely shade of olive green.  The tag said wool suiting but I struggle to feel any wool in this fabric.










I made no changes to my previous version.  Even the length is identical.


I love the resulting pants and they have been on regular rotation as part of my work wardrobe.  They even became part of my Christmas day outfit of choice due to weather being cooler than expected.

  4. Lovely pants - the line in the front is very flattering. I'm prepping a pair with a single pleat in the front which could be good or could be bad.

    1. Thank you Gail! If the single pleat doesn't work out, you could always stitch it flat.
