I bought this (linen?) fabric for $3 at the Goodwill one day, and decided to make a skirt out of the Obi Apron pattern. Luckily, my friend needed some models for her hair portfolio, so I got some nice pictures of it!

I wasn’t sure how to turn the apron into a skirt, but here’s what I finally decided to do. I added an extra panel to the back, and made a little casing at the top so I could put elastic in it. The elastic falls right under where you wrap it, so you can’t see it. Not perfect, but worked out for me!
