The pattern I’m sharing today is a special one! Made for Mermaids has been celebrating some milestones, and wanted to release a special pattern for the party too! They have designed a pattern for girls culottes, Cora, and there is also the Mama Cora version too 🙂 A culotte is a split skirt, so you get the fun swingy-ness of a skirt, with some of the practicality of pants or shorts!
These are special because they’re on a super sale, for $3, and 100% of proceeds will be going to local Texas Hurricane Harvey relief charities. You can make a difference, and get a pattern!
If you want to wait, there will be a special code for Made for Mermaids Pattern Group members starting October 1st. But through the month of September, they will be $3, to help support the needs of Texas.
There are three lengths included in the girls pattern, short, above the knee, and below the knee. Optional inseam pockets are also included. These are the quickest sew, and easy to wear!
I used double brushed poly for these, I’ve kind of been on a dbp kick for a bit, but it works so well for so many things! Rayon spandex will be a bit too clingy for these, and cotton lycra will be too stiff. The benefit of having a huge hoard means I always have the right fabric when I need it 🙂
