Obi Apron Variation

Added May 12, 2012

by DanaRose84

Toronto, Canada






I wanted to create an apron based on the obi apron that would cover the blouse as well as the skirt and that would still take its inspiration from the kimono, as the original pattern does.

This is what I came up with.

Material Notes

Gorgeous medium weight cotton. I love making aprons because you can use quilting cotton, which always has amazing prints and is so easy to work with!

    Am going to make this to wear when I do my crochet workshops. Will put some pockets on to stash in spare hooks and stitch markers. I have some lovely old retro fabric I shall use. Thanks for sharing this pattern.

    This would make a cute dress, with some changes to the back, of course!
