A mini-skirt made out of vintage obi fabric. The front pockets are the jeans’ style ones I adore, last seen here. I will definitely be making this one again with a more appropriate choice of fabric.
This is a burdastyle project variation, hopefully the pattern I used will be uploaded soon so that I can link it and explain what I changed.
Pattern:Mini-skirt 102, Burda 10/2011.
Fabric:Obi silk lined with black rayon.
Modifications:Eliminated centre front seam and fly zipper from the mini-skirt.
Added an invisible side seam zipper instead.
Didn’t hem the skirt because Obi fabric is narrow and the selvedge formed the perfect hem.
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
