Reversible Dress- EAM

One Dress – Two Looks



As I was sewing this dress up, I was trying to coming up with reasons why I needed a reversible dress. We know I NEEDED it! I decided it would make the perfect day to night outfit. You can use bright cheery colors on one side and darker sexier colors on the other. Maybe you need it for travel. One garment in your bag, but two outfits. Lastly, I thought if you were like me and a messy eater…drip your soup at lunch…no problem. Just turn your dress inside out and you’re good to go! Ok, that was in a stretch, but it is so my life!


This is one side of my dress. I choose to make the mini version which is a actually a knee length. The midi version is several inches longer. I chose to color block my front bodice here.

The hot pink fabric is DBP from Sly Fox Fabrics and the floral print is from Sew Blessed Fabrics.

On the flip side…


I have to confess that this is a mistake. My skirt is attached incorrectly. It should have been split with black in the front or back and the blue as the opposite. It works out well though and it just looks colorblocked. This blue BP is also from Sly Fox and the watercolor looking print is from… gasp….Joann’s. I picked it up last Black Friday.

Ok Let’s talk pattern features…

Solid and color block options

Mini and midi length options


Excellent twirl factor

No trim pattern pages for quick assembly

Layers printing feature is included for this pattern for your convenience

Sizes XXS-4X. I sewed the 4X.

I am a single dog mom of two and we happily reside in a small house in Ohio. We spend our days playing fetch, digging holes in the garden, and sewing, lots of sewing. We have high hopes of moving to the mountains someday. The dogs don’t really know that yet, but they will understand. I shamelessly hoard fabric and feel slightly sorry for whoever has to sort my stash when I am gone. I am employed full time in a industry that requires little of my creativity, but basically lets me wear whatever I want. So it works out. I can usually be found behind one of my sewing machine avoiding human contact. I test a lot of clothing patterns and therefore always have a new outfit to share. You have most likely found my blog through some sort of sewing outlet and will quickly realize that I am sewing for a plus size body. For reference, I am 5'1 and wear a range from a 2-5x. Sizes change with every designer and you can't trust ready to wear sizing when you are making your own clothing. Your tape measure will become one of your most used tools and if you misplace them like I do, you should pick up several. I will be sharing the good, the bad, and the A-MA-ZING with you… So stay tuned. I will also try to teach you a few of my tricks along the way. People always tells me they want to learn how to sew. My best advice is you have to start. Just do it! You are going to mess up, you will break needles, you will ruin the pretty fabric, you will stab your fingers, but you will learn. You will make something and you will wear it. Someone will say, “I like your shirt.” and you will smile and say, “Thanks, I made it.” You will race home and make something else. Pretty soon you have made more good things than bad and you will feel proud of yourself and you should. I will be proud of you too. :) Ok, that is enough rambling, I have sewing to do. :) SequoiaLynn
