Calista is perfect for a summer soiree or an afternoon of shopping!! Your fashionista can wear Calista as a set or separately. The high waisted culottes feature a flat front waistband with knife pleats across the front, elasticized back waistband and pockets.

The crop top hem and the culottes waistband are designed so that they meet and sit just above the navel at the natural waistline. This barely midriff outfit is sure to be a summer favorite! Calista is a quick and easy sew designed for stretch woven fabrics which means no zippers or buttons!!

CULOTTES - Any of the above or other light weight cottons with nice drape such as chambray, linen, rayon, quilting cotton, etc., no stretch needed.
Yardage is based on 58” wide fabrics. Remember to account for fabric shrinkage. Fabric requirements are rounded to the nearest quarter yard.
