I made this reversible travel tank for my upcoming trip to Paris. I wanted to create something that could be worn multiple times and hand washed when traveling. I decided to use the bodice top pattern of Burda’s Dropped Waist Dress using two layers of fabric on the front side of the shirt. This allows me to flip the top for a color change. The bias finished neckline creates a perfect finish for a reversible garment.I discovered I could hide the side seams of the garment by sandwiching the back bodice between the two front bodice layers when sewing the side seams together. After turning the garment the side seam will be encased inside of the two front layers. To do this I had to reverse the pattern directions and start with sewing the side seams first, followed by the shoulder seams, and apply the bias binding last. I also put a bias binding over the raw shoulder seams to make them nice for flipping the shirt. Happy with how it has turned out, and ready to go on my trip.
