Zero waste, no cut skirt sample

From the previous zero waste, no cut experiments I did in November, I chose to make up this skirt design as a sample garment.

I think the bustle at the back, and gathering around the skirt worked well and gave the skirt a great shape.  This ruching was created by turning the sleeves inside the skirt and anchoring the shirt to the sleeves in various random places. I was, however, disappointed with the centre front. I was so determined not to cut anything off the original shirts, and this meant that the button stand on the centre front doesn’t sit flat.

If I was to make this again I would take more off the shirt (at the skirt waist) to ensure the skirt sits flat down the centre front.
