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

in NeedleWorkMonday6 months ago

(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.


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



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)


Happy Needlework Monday!

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
