This wonderful double-face fabric was a must when I saw it in the store, but then I didn’t know what to make with so that the double-face would really come into play. Finally I realized that it had to be a really simple pattern and took it off a summer garment I own. The original is made from a very light white cotton and I wear it over sleeveless tops and over basically everything and every day… So I made a Fall version of it, optimized the cut a little bit and made it reversible by using French seams all over. I left the selvedge raw for the sleeves and collar. There must be at least 203 ways to wear this! More pictures (different ones) are at my blog, where you can also click and zoom in on the pattern pieces to see how it is put together : Of Dreams and Seams By the way – what would you call this garment type? I have no idea…
