I first started the simple Obi Apron pattern (by prudencerabbit) with the intention of making it into a smart/ fun skirt. However as with the all best made plans in the world, I didn’t get to the end goal but ended up a with a happy out come.
A Obi skirt (complete with a elastic so I can run after my 3 year old and still breath) and a lovely fun classic lined skirt.
The is a light cotton/synthetic fabric is from the local market £1 per meter as long as you buy 5meters ( cant go wrong with that), Black lining left over from past projects and the thickest iron in interfacing I had. 7in zip though an 8in zip would have been better.
