I have a pair of Lunch Box Culottes planned but don't expect to get around to them until late Feb.! I'm still curious to watch the sew along as there was some part of the Girl Friday pleats/waistband that still didn't come together right for me...looking forward to seeing yours.
Yes I saw on the forums you were having issues. I don't know how much the patterns differ. Pleats v Darts I think?My first pair of culottes came together nicely for L but they were in velour and it made for a bunched waistband. This pair are in needlecord so should be much better.
I'm making khaki Lunch Box ones that my girl can wear to school as uniform bottoms.
I have been considering them for school wear too. I haven't made my eldest a pair yet, these will be the first ones. I hope she likes them!
