    I wish I did, but I don't sew.

    But I wanted to say how wonderful I think it is that you're using the word "culottes" (which is what I always called them as a kid) instead of that dreaded new word which is taking over everything these days -- gauchos!

    gaucho sounds so harsh, cullottes sounds nice and sweet.

    But sorry, no pattern.

    that dreaded new word ... gauchos
    I think I remember them being gauchos a while back as well! If I recall correctly, they were culottes when I was in elementary school and gauchos when I was in - maybe - junior high.

    Culottes definitely sounds better.

    I didn't even realise they were making a comeback until I saw some the other day on an American Idol (yes) contestant.

    Every time I see the word Coulottes, I think of the part in the biography of Anne M. Martin. She wrote the babysitters club books.
    Those had just come into style, and she was a kid. She was wearing them, and climbed up the ladder to her treehouse. They got stuck on the top rung, and the whole ladder fell backwards with her on it, and she got sandwiched between a log and the ladder. She had to get surgery to remover her spleen.
    Totally sad.

    So I'm kinda scared of them because of that. lol. Even though I'm a grownup and don't climb ladders!

    They were the only things girls were allowed to wear in my Baptist school on field trips and we had to wear them while playing sports. They had to be knee-length or longer. I can't believe people would willingly wear them, but that's just the residual pissed-offness, I think.

    (On-topic: Sorry, no patterns. :)
