Less waste everyday skirt / 無駄のない普段着スカート

(Excuse me for my poor front camera ... !)

I wanted to have a black long skirt to wear casually everyday and was looking for fabric for a while, thick linen or cotton. Finally I found an ideal one and made it.

家で気軽にはける黒い長いスカートを縫いたいなと思って、長い間布を探していました。ちょっと厚めのリネンか木綿か。ようやくリネンと木綿混紡のいい感じの生地をみつけて縫えました。

The fabric was quite expensive (for me) so I tried to buy as less as possible ... :D Here is my idea:

いい生地なものの、私にとっては値段が高いぞ・・・ということでなるべく少ない生地で工夫して作りました。こんな感じ:

It turned out well and I'm wearing it quite often at home. It doesn't fit to my down jacket so I'll wear it outside in spring :)

(Once my partner said me that long skirts are for elderly ladies. I was observing people on street and found not so many people are wearing it. But I think in Japan it's not uncommon and I like to wear it. It's warm in the winter time with socks and tights, it's comfortable in the hot summer days. So I wear it as a future elderly lady :D)

冬に着るダウンジャケットとあまり合わないので、もっぱら家で着ていますが、春になったら外に着ていきたいです。

I often see long wide skirts in Japanese sewing/crafting books and I love this style. As you know I still crave such a skirt, but am unsure if it is a good choice for my figure/size. Yours is wonderful and suits you. I also love the sock and Birkenstock style and hope for warmer weather so that we can wear these outside.
Sadly, I did not understand your fabric saving sketch (but I want to) 😱

Here is an improved version 😁Then I could manage the skirt within 1m (+10cm the shop added as a gift?).

When I wear something large on top with a long skirt, I become a large chunk of fabric, which I should avoid ..... 🤣

Ohhh cool thank you, now I understand the schematic (I am not very good in translating two dimensions into three). You sewed in an elastic at the waist I guess? Or did you have a flat waistband with a zipper (sorry, I am skirt obsessed)
And be assured if you ever look like a chunk of fabric (which you don’t) its a beautiful chunk <3
I already wrote you that I love oversized clothes, but sadly I still have these norms of thinness in my head, so I often feel uncomfortable in wide clothes, or in very slim one or in general 😂😂 (I guess making photos for needlework is a a kind of therapy) I write this, because I find you very beautiful and you look exactly like I would love I could look in this skirt (sorry, complicated sentence)

PS: I baked bread today :-DDDDD But I have some dough left and I will sneak in sugar and make a poppy strudel :-D

I used elastic band for the waist. For relaxing and easy sewing ... I wish I don't grow with the skirt .......... 😁
Talking about bred, I must make mohnschnecke soon!

By the way, I call this socks "Steem color socks" :D (The Birkenstock house shoes repaired with the leftover yarn!)

I love you zero waste pattern, it is genius the way you get it... maybe I will made one like yours..
Thank you for share
