This formerly was my boyfriend’s sofa cover. But the sofa got too old, so I took my fabric back!
I made this skirt with the inspiration from the obi apron
So it’s basically a full skirt (actually fuller than full, coz it was too big so I ruched it a little bit), with an obi belt that goes crossing in the back and comes back to the front to make a big cute bow!
I added pockets. Pockets are the best !!! That’s something I love about sewing skirts and dresses : you can add pockets and it’s so practical!
I still have some trouble with rounded hem. I tried to shirr a little bit the edge, but it didn’t work perfectely well…
