The Obi apron is so lovely. It has a kind of a Sex in the City touch!

As I am not into aprons, I decided to make an Obi skirt. I really enjoyed making this.

    I absolutely love this! I love high-waisted skirts and you pull it off very well! (I always doubt if I do…) Definitely a pattern that I’m gonna give a try!

    I love this! Did you just extend each side of the skirt, so the pieces met, and put a zipper in at the back where they connected to get it to close in the back?

      Hi there, I saw this message just now. I just cut out one big rectangle and stitched the back seam together, leaving like 20 cm open at the upper part for the zipper. I hope you understand what I mean, otherwise check out my blog for more details.
