obi apron goes skirt.

Added Mar 24, 2011

I liked the look of the obi apron, but i wanted a skirt. So I made one out of the apron pattern.

I used a very light fabric so it’s the perfect spring and summer skirt. But I don’t know the exact fabric expression.

Here’s how I made this skirt




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Classic, Romantic

    I love this too! I love the big bow on the back and I can’t figure out how to do it… I would love any instructions on how you converted it.

    Ah, this is great! I really wanted that obi apron to be a skirt, as well. ): I wish I could figure out how you did this! Maybe if I take a closer look at the pattern and your pictures I’ll piece it out. (:

    Wonderful!! I remember looking at the OBI apron wishing it would have been a skirt instead.

    Amazing! Really like it… Perfectly fits in the African theme that’s now so much in fashion!
