I loved the Obi Apron prundencerabbit posted a pattern for, but I really wanted a skirt. So I spent all day messing around with some old fabric I found in the basement. I added a panel in the back of the skirt, I believe is is 19" X 19". I sewed that panel right on to one of the apron strings, and both sides of the skirt, leaving a couple inches open on one side. I’m not sure if I’m going to put a button, zipper, or anything there to latch the opening shut since there is extra material and the ties keep everything in place. I also want to tweak the back of the skirt (maybe with some darts?) for a more flattering look.
