This was going to be a reversible wrap dress, but I didn't pay attention when cutting and laid the pieces out wrong so Icouldn't cut a third skirt piece.  Roll Eyes So, I made do. I think it's actually cuter than if I did it the first way. It was WAY more tricky to sew though, it was really hard not to sew myself into a corner on this dress.

It snaps in back with 2 snaps where the placket overlaps. They eyelet at the waist is just barely transparent, there are 2 layers there....and everywhere else for that matter. :p

On to the pics:

Inspiration without application is moot.

LOL, I'd make one for me for sure if I could figure out how to do the boobs!

Thanks! This one is actually not a wrap 'cause I ran out of yardage, it just overlaps in front for kind of a crossover look. I am happy w/ how it turned out even given the missteps I made cutting.

Thank you! I started making reversible dresses because I hate hemming that bad - really!  Tongue

Did you use a pattern or make up your own. This is exactly the sort of dress I'm looking to make for my niece.

It's my own pattern that I've been refining for some time.
