A skirt from Prudence Rabbits Obi Apron pattern.
When turning this pattern into a skirt I wanted to keep the simplicity of the apron by not adding a zip so I inserted an extra panel of fabric at the back so that it would just fit over my hips. I added a simple belt loop at the centre of this panel for the ties to go through.
This was a trial version….I am going to make this again and make it a little bit longer and make the ties longer so I can do a big bow. I also plan to make the waistband come round further so there doesn’t need to be so much width in the extra back panel as I’m noth thrilled with the way that the extra panel bunches up so much.
