A while back, I bought some dark red culottes from Madewell, tried them on with different items in my closet, and showed you the pictures. I liked them, but I decided not to keep them, because they were a bit expensive for a limited-wear item. I decided I could make a pair, if I came across a fabric that I liked.
I did find a dark red linen, and made a pair of culottes. My linen isn't as drapey as the rayon used by Madewell, but I like my color better, and I like how they turned out. Here they are, in a couple of outfits.
1-2: Raspberry linen culottes and blue and red rug-print rayon high-low tank (made by me); blue jeans jacket (AG, Robyn); metallic lace-up Mary Janes (Trippen, Foxy).
3-4: Raspeberry linen culottes, light blue-gray linen long sleeved tee with layered hem, and black linen cowl-neck layered-front vest with gray, blue, and red appliques (made by me); black peep-toe sling back platform sandals (Munro).
Thanks for looking! I welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
