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.
