Thanks to the beautiful yet beginner firendly design by prudencerabbit I made my first obi apron a while ago. In its lovely shade of green its just perfect to swirl around in whilst prepping food. I still haven’t managed to take any pics of it, so bear with me. These are of my second take on it. When my sister first saw my apron she was not all too fazed by it but two hours later she suddenly liked it a lot more and asked me to make a red and white gingham one – but with pockets!
Gladly, I obliged. I made it a bit longer for her since we’re both taller than ‘average’ (albeit no giants) and lengthened the ties some more. Obviously I added pockets and I embellished these with a strip of simple lace for an even more finished look. End of the day, I totally fell in love with this apron and found it difficult to hand it over to my sister. Haha. My sister loves it, too. She calls it her ‘Dorothy’ apron because she’ll be using it as a prop for her Dorothy costume for her birthday party. (Yeah, not quite the colour scheme but who cares!)
I absolutely love the design and even turned it into a skirt (pics to follow some other time) that’s quickly become my favourite thing to wear.
