I can't decide which side I like more! My daughter looks adorable in this dress.

It took me all week from "dreaming about it" to working on the pattern, to sewing the flippin' thing together.  Grin
And I only had to use my seam ripper a couple of times. It really should only take me a couple of hours the next time I make one.

Side 1:

I love the black trim on this side. I think it gives the dress a retro look.




Side 2:

I saw this fabric at the store and thought about it and passed it up. I was about to leave when I went back for it. At first I thought it was too busy, but it has grown on me and now I love it!

That is absolutely so adorable and so smart.  I have been trying to figure out how to make a shirt that's not only reversible but where you can change the sleeves, front/back panels, collar, and cuffs.  I've seen them on movies like LOTR, and I saw it once on a sewing show.  One day I'll figure out how to do it, maybe you can with how creative you are.  I always thought that would be such a creative way to have a wardrobe.
