This technique is inspired by Alabama Chanin. I used it to make a reversible outfit called "Water and Jam".
The technique takes each piece of a pattern and completes it first, _before_ assembling them altogether. In this example, two different coloured fabrics are used.

Follow the steps to see how I made both a pink and a blue top.. at once!
