Description

I gave in and made a different version of the pattern I used on the Double Cowl Dress. This time I swapped the skirt pieces for my tried and true Burdastyle Jenny – cutting the back piece on the fold but still including the darts.
I wanted to wear this to work so instead of the drape at the back as well as the front I used the front of View C to create the back bodice.

This had the unplanned but happy result of making the dress reverdsible, great if you don’t have time to change afterwork in the festive season!

    It’s a very stylish little black dress which looks great on you. I’m actually quite surprised to see it really work as a reversible garment. Usually, with fitted items, the shape just isn’t right for that.

      Thank you!

      I know, I was totally surprised too, as I hadn’t planned it that way, but I think the fabric has enough stretch and drape to it that it skims over everything rather than clings.
