The Bastion culottes are a Jennifer Lauren classic pattern. These culottes are designed in such a way that can be easily mistaken for a half-circle skirt thanks to a fitted waistline and wide legs which drape over your hips and flare out just like a skirt.

In addition to a wonderful, flattering shape, the Sailor-style button front with deep and roomy pockets really create a stand-out style 

You can choose between two length options, mid-calf or above the knee.

The Bastion Culottes are suitable for a range of woven fabrics. Choose lighter weight linens, cottons and chambray for the summer or snuggle up in wool and flannel for the colder months. 



  • The Original includes sizes 6-24 Waist from 61.5cm (24 1/4") to 106.5cm (41 7/8") and hip from 89.5cm (35 1/4") to 134.5cm (52 7/8")
  • The Curve includes sizes 16 to 34.  Waist from 86.5cm (34 1/8")") to  131.5m (51 3/4") and hip 114.5cm (45 1/8") to 159.5cm (62 3/4")

Skill Level: Intermediate

Recommended Fabric: The Bastion Culottes work well in light to mid-weight fabrics with some drape for both summer and winter options. Linen, chambray, poplin, and voile are perfect for summer. Look for light to mid-weight denim, pinwale (baby) cord, wool blends, and flannel for winter.
