とと姉ちゃんと四角いシャツ

《直線裁ちとの出会い》

 

2016年に放送されたNHK朝の連続テレビ小説「とと姉ちゃん」。「浜松」「織物」が物語の背景になっていたことが大きな話題で、私も毎朝放送を楽しみに見ていました。その中で7月末に放送された「直線裁ちワンピース講習会」の放送では、洋裁技術を必要としない直線ラインの型を以って家庭でも縫えるよう講習会を開講していました。テレビ画面には色とりどりの浴衣ワンピースを着たヒロイン、直線裁ちのイメージを広げるデザインの提案、そして参加者の楽しそうな笑顔の中で進んでいく講習会シーンが進んでいきました。浜松も浴衣の産地です。

 

「やらなきゃ!」

 

突然頭に閃きました。

そして「えーーー、やるの?」

明らかにうろたえているもう一人の自分。

それは忘れもしない、私自身が開催していた「開襟シャツの作り方教室」最終日を迎える朝のことでした。

 

≪開催準備期間は半月≫

 

浜松は日本一の浴衣生地の産地でもあります。だからこそ、やりたい。そして「やれる、かも?」

でも、開催するなら二か月後でも一年後でもなく、来月の8月です。残り半月。準備は時間との戦いでした。

まず、浴衣の産元会社を経営されている白井商事さんへ問い合わせ生地在庫の確認。「生地は揃いますよ」とのこと。

以降慌ただしく準備が始まりました。開催場所の情報、ワンピースのデザイン、型紙おこし、縫製手順つくり、チラシ写真撮り、サンプル縫い、講習会の日の調整、そして参加者募集、、、、。もちろん進めるためにたくさんの方の手と知恵を借りました。

 

《直線裁ちワンピース講座》

なんとか準備期間を走り切り、開講。心配していた参加申し込みもビックリの満席でした。市内からだけではなく遠くは裾野市からもご参加下さり、手作り服、地元素材への関心の高さを感じました。そして何より、私自身が「直線裁ち」という技法との出会いはとてお大きかったのです。

 実は私も初体験だった「直線裁ち」。その技法に一番驚いたのはサイズ感のおおらかさでした。講習会で作ったワンピースは1型のみでしたが、女性のMサイズの方から3Lサイズの方まで着ることが出来ました。デザインも工夫次第。ワンピースの着丈を変えるとシャツとしても着用できます。そして「製作時間の短縮」「洋裁技術を用しない頒布性」そのどれもが私にとって驚きの新発見でした。

 

 

《直線裁ちと四角いシャツ》

 

この経験から、今年2018年「直線裁ちワンピース」をシャツにして「四角いシャツ」を発案。バリエーションある遠州織物の素材を楽しんでもらう「型」を作り、気軽に、日常生活の中で、心地よく遠州織物を楽しんで頂けるよう「販売」「オーダー」「ちくちく出張講座」の3つの窓口で進めています。まだ始まったばかりの試みはドキドキですが、今度はゴールが「あと半月先」とういうことではないので少し気が楽かもしれません。笑

 

四角いシャツが世界品質の遠州織物、そしてその産地遠州浜松との出会い楽しんで頂く窓口になっていけると良いな、と思っています。

 

 

Then, my elder sister and square shirt

<<Encounter with straight line cut>>

 

Continuous television novel in the NHK morning broadcast in 2016 "and, if, my elder sister". "Hamamatsu" "fabric" but it was a big topic that it was a background of a story, and I was seeing a broadcast pleasantly every morning, too. I had started a workshop so that i could also sew the style of the straight line line which doesn't require dressmaking technology at home by a broadcast broadcast of "straight line cut dress workshop" at the end of July in it. The heroine who put on a multicolored yukata dress and workshop Sean advancing in the proposition with the design to expand an image of straight line cut and the smiling face by which a participant seems funny advanced towards television screen. Hamamatsu is also a producing center of a yukata.

 

"I have to do!"

 

It flashed into a head suddenly.

And "Do you get it and do?"

Another person's of oneself flustered clearly.

The "how to make classroom of" an open-necked shirt I myself who don't also leave that were holding was the morning when the last day is met.

 

 

≪ Holding lead time, halfmoon≫

 

Hamamatsu is also a producing center in the best of Japan yukata birthplace. So, I'd like to do. And "The sucker who can be sent?"

But if it's held, even two months later will be August of next month, not one year later. Remaining halfmoon. Preparations were a war with time.

First inquire of the managed Shirai Trading a fortune former company of a yukata, check of fabric inventory. "Fabric gathers." said.

After a while is busy and preparations have started. Adjustment on a day of information on a holding place, the design of the dress, pattern promotion, sewing procedure production, handbill picture taking, sample stitch and an institute and participant recruitment 、、、、. I asked for advice with person's a lot of hands to advance it of course.

 

<<Straight line cut dress lecture>>

I finish running through lead time somehow and starts the course. The participation application about which I worried was also surprised full house. From the city, you also participated from Susono-shi far, and the height of the interest to the homemade clothes and the local material was felt. And with the technique I myself call "straight line cut" above all, even HA came and was big.

 The "straight line cut" by which I was first experience actually, too. It was easy-going of the size sense that I was most astonished at the technique. The dress made with a workshop was only type 1, but it was possible to put it on from a female medium way to the way of 3 large. As soon as the design is also devised. When a length of a dress is changed, it can also be put on as a shirt. And "reduction in working time" "the distribution by which business doesn't do dressmaking technology" it was the major breakthrough by which the none is surprise for me.

 

<<Straight line cut and square shirt>>

 

2018 "straight line cut dress" is made a shirt and "square shirt" is proposed this year from this experience. The "type" which enjoys the material of the Enshu fabric a variation is is made, and it's being advanced at 3 desks of "sale" "order" "I make a business trip scratchily, lecture" in order to enjoy Enshu fabric pleasantly in the daily life casually. The try which has just still started is pulse-pounding, this time, a goal, I ask about the after halfmoon front", it isn't to say, so I may feel comfortable a little. warai

 
I think I hope that a square shirt can be the person in charge who comes and has enjoy itself with Enshu fabric of the world quality and its producing center Enshu Hamamatsu.
