I want to design something similar,
Why ? What's wrong with this design?
I don't know what you mean. Are you offering a prize for a design, or suggesting this as a reasonable price for a skirt?the cost of a pattern to be made is 250$ American doller.
I think plenty of skirt ideas have been bandied about here and elsewhere, not counting the numerous designs put on the market and aimed at women.How bout some suggestions and ideas?
I feel that far too much emphasis is put on the the idea of designing something new, as if one can really improve upon the basic design of a piece cloth to wind round the hips. Does anyone think that by producing something different, it will be accepted as more "masculine"?
Recently, the French skirt association (HEJ) and the creator Hiatus launched a competition for a new design for a men's skirt. Although I have always liked drawing, designing, creating with the imaginative capacities I happen to be endowed with, I could see no point in taking part in this, as I am quite convinced that all the skirt designs we need already exist. It's unlikely that anyone will come up with something better (more appropriate) than the plain denim skirt (unisex), the sarong, the kilt with or without pleats at the back -- or even the utilikilt with pleats at the front. Do we really need more of the outrageous outfits like those seen on the women's fashion shows, most of which will never be worn? No; the good, down-to-earth, tried-and-tested designs already exist, have existed for centuries. Let's just wear them !
Most of the results will be women's sizes, but as I said, there might be some inspiration.
Here's an example:
