Sister Mintaka presents the Tania Culottes sewing pattern by Megan Nielsen.
Tania is a modern take on culottes combining the practicality of shorts with the appearance of a skirt. This pattern features three variations. It has an elastic waistband, wonderful drape, and hidden centre front and back pleats to create the illusion of a skirt. Version 1 is shorts length, Version 2 is knee length and Version 3 is midi length.
View A is a bias cut midi length skirt. View B is a skirt pleated above the knee. View C is a gathered skirt below the knee. View D is a bias cut skirt above the knee.
