Hello! Im a bit nervous but here I go. I’ll share with you my first Burda project.

A few weeks ago I saw the fabulous Obi Apron and I wanted to make skirt similar to that …
Making it was very easy…
It took me about 1:30 hour to make it :D
I love it. …. because its simple and very confortable… I wore it for the first time 2 weeks ago for this Seminar I had. All my friends, female friends were in awe about the skirt. It was very unique .

I really want to make another one so I just might good to the fabric store soon and buy new fabrics :D

I took pictures with my celphone because my camera is broken … I’m sorry for the crappy pictures but I rather share this project with Burda than just save it in my closet without giving credit to the inspiration I found here .

Material Notes

cotton (trevira), thread, a zipper, and a hook and eye.




Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter
Garment Type
Business, Casual, Classic, Evening Wear, Romantic, Vintage


just me

      thank you.I find your comment very nice.

      mmm well about any advice… just make sure to buy the right fabric….

      ohhh and make sure the fabric isn’t see through… I bought mine because it wasn’t and I really hate lining things… :S
