Did you heard that it can be enough to only own one little black dress and being dressed appropriate to all occasions from baptism to funeral?
If a piece of clothes like that exists, I didn't found it jet.
Recently I had been in need of a black outfit and I made myself a new skirt from a woolen fabric that has been laying around for a while as I couldn't decide how to cut-sew-use it. I bought it two winters ago to make an over-trousers-skirt and I remember it being expensive, so I didn't want to ruin it. Now, being in need, I made a simple skirt out of it.
There hasn't been enough fabric to make a proper waistband, so I used black ribbed jersey. The knitted woolen fabric had two nice sides and I couldn't decide for one. Therefore I took a big effort to make it usable from both sides, what means to hide the seams. I am more or less happy with the result. Have a look:
I tried to hem the seam, but it has been too stiff, so I took it off. It is not really proper, but for now I left the hem open. It is a knitted fabric, so it won't fray out, we will see how it looks after a while of wearing it. So far it was okay.
And as planned when buying the fabric it is possible to wear this skirt also over a jeans - I like stretchy skirts.
