Bastion features a sailor-style front button opening with deep, roomy pockets cleverly integrated into the waistline.

Gently fitted at the natural waist, the legs drape effortlessly down over the hips in a breezy flared silhouette.

With two length options — falling to mid-calf or above the knee — you can style your culottes with fitted knit tops or loose button-up blouses tucked in or tied at the waist. Throw a cropped cardigan over the top for cooler climes.

Bastion has been styled here with the Gable Top, the Hunter Tank and the Aisling Blouse.

Fabric:
Choose lighter weight linens and chambray for summer, or go for snuggly wool suitings and flannel for the perfect winter garment. 

- 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 mid-weight denims, pinwale (baby) cord, wool blends and flannel for winter.

Skill Level:
Bastion is a fun sew, with interesting construction techniques. If you're a confident beginner seamstress and love the look of bastion, you will enjoy the challenge. Buttonholes and keeping track of important notches are the key skills required.

Of course, advanced seamstresses will also enjoy the construction and will have a lovely pair of pants in a day or so.

Sizing & Fit:

Bastion sits at the natural waist, so choose your size based on this measurement — the smallest part of your torso, usually above your belly button.

Bastion then falls gently out over the hips in a fit'n'flare style silhouette, meaning the hips are free in the finished garment.

The crotch height is designed to sit at approximately the height of regular, loosely fitting wide legged pants, but an additional Lengthen/Shorten line as been added to make adjusting this height easy and stress-free.

Bastion is drafted for an average height of 170cm or 5'6.
