Crazy for Culottes

It's that time of year again, when my obsession with 30s sportswear and resort wear kicks in.  One of my favourite obsessions right now: 30s culotte dresses.  IF you can believe it, I have an original 30s culotte dress in my shop right now.  Tried it on for the first time today and it actually *just* fit, so get it while you can (i.e., before it hops into my closet!).  Hey, if it's not in your size or price point, you could always get a pattern and make something similar!

Love this look! All the cuteness of a skirt with the practicality of pants.

I have a slightly later (early Fifties) culotte pattern floating around somewhere that I've been meaning to take a crack at...lookin' at that dress is increasing my inclination to give it a try!

Ooh I love when you break out the 30s sportswear! Yay! Those culottes are great, and so perfect with those shoes.

Hey! I have that first pattern :) Your darling set makes me really want to make some. I've been iffy about the pattern, but seeing it in the print... I must have one!

Oh wow, those look darn cute on! I never made culottes because I don't think I ever saw them on an actual person but I just might now thanks to you!

I'm glad to have enhanced the allure of, and desire for, cutie culottes!!! Can't wait to see the ones you gals, make!

Polka dotted ones sound dreamy!!

This is such a sweet, playfully wonderful vintage summer look - especially for those (like me) who rarely (if ever) wear shorter length shorts and/or skirts, even during the toastiest of months.


Wishing you a stellar Sunday,
♥ Jessica

I am often wary of culottes (they remind me of growing up in a very conservative, religious environment, which meant culottes were the only acceptable form of pants for some!), but I love these examples you've shown! Would be perfect for hiking/camping and riding my bike... Must give them another look, I think! ;)
