Ok, so I've got these two gorgeous bi-stretch fabrics and I want to combine them into one reversible dress with sleeves.

I've found a lot of reversible dress tutorials, but most of them are for toddlers and NONE of them include sleeves. I don't want to show my arms, especially when bell sleeves suit me so well Cheesy Any suggestions would be VERY gratefully received x x x

The best thing I could think of would be to use the same bag lining technique that's used to line jackets, where the lining would be your reverse side, leaving off the facings.  Check this out:  http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/4366/bag-your-jacket-lining.  I'd probably hand tack the shoulder and sleeve seams together, to keep everything in place, too.  Be careful that your materials are both stretching in the same direction, too!
