Since I first saw the reversible Sidonie by Fashion1, I wanted to make one myself and finally I’ve found the time to do it.
The violet part is an old pillowcase (which was white when I first got it, but I dyed the pillowcase and bedheet in this marvelous violet), the colorful part is a fabric from Ikea. Both fabrics aren’t stretchy and I didn’t find a matching reversible zipper, so I decided to make the Sidonie a size bigger than I needed and put an elastic band in the waistband. Now I can only pull the skirt on over my head and not step into it, but well… who cares?
Ikea fabric (rather stiff cotton/ linen), pillowcase (I guess it’s cotton as well)
Take a trip down the aisle in these gorgeous gowns, or change the fabrics for a spring party dress.
