Super cute short-short custom-made culottes from white kettle-cloth (looks like linen but made of a more wrinkle resistant blend of cotton and polyester).
This has a faced waistline with a placket down the center front with decorative buttons. It has a side seam zipper; metal, by Coats & Clarks. There’s room at the top of the zipper for a hook and eye, but there is not one there.
This has top-stitched tucks on the front and back that act as body shapers as well as adds fullness to the leg of the shorts.
Around top (sits on the natural waistline, not below it): 22”
Approximate hips (8” below the top of the garment): 36” +
Inseam: 2 and 1/8”
Outer seam: 13 and 3/4”
Front seam to crotch: 13”
Back waist seam to crotch: 13 and ¾”
Around hem of leg opening: 34 and .75”
These have been freshly laundered and are ready to wear.
From the 70s, this may have been worn with red white and blue since the bicentennial was a huge influence at that time. White goes with anything, though, so this is very versatile!
