Super excited to share this with everybody. It's a reversible dress with a high low hem that I made over the weekend, and I've done a lil tutorial to go with it The method outlined in the tutorial is great because it can be used to line pretty much any sleeveless tank-top or dress, with a finish nice enough that it can be worn inside out.
I tried posting it here, but the tutorial photos were resized too small to be useful.

You can find the instructions my blog, http://www.mollytov.com/how-to-sew-a-reversible-dress/ along with a pile of other tutorials and projects. Anyways, hope you enjoy it. Constructive criticism is always welcome!

It looks very comfortable for spring. I agree with what you said on the blog, it's really short in the front. I bet it would go great with leggings, if you're into that kind of thing. Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful! Thanks for the great tute. It's always hard to find the time for sewing projects, but this is one that I might have to put on my "to-do" list rather than my "to-do-someday" list. ^^

Might I make one tiny suggestion for the tutorial? I was a little confused, thinking that the darker pink corresponded to the wrong side of the fabric, and the lighter pink to the right side. (Similarly for the green layer.) It might make your point clearer if you were to add shading lines to the wrong side of the fabric, like on commercial patterns.

Thanks again for the awesome inspiration! And I like the double-layer look, but for my money, that darker cobalt blue is just so luscious. 0_0

This is a lovely dress. I love the way it flows on you. You did a fantastic job in making a pattern for it. A wonderful flowing dress... versatile too. Thank you for sharing.

Wow, thanks for the replies everybody. Makes me feel real warm and fuzzy inside!

And this is great advice Nandra, The darker pink just indicated the piece that was behind the other one, but I should definitely figure out a way to do the shading which indicates the correct side/wrong side of the fabric. Thank you!
