reversible Sidonie - for the MiniChallenge

Added Mar 4, 2008

by fashion1

Dresden, Germany






The original versions of the Sidonie skirt are not really my style. So I want to make something different.

I lower the waistband about 15 cm, seam allowence included. And I add in seam pockets (I followed nayantaras how to). I also lenghtened it with a “waving” stripe.

Instead only to sew lining in, I decide to make it reversible. So I use only the pattern for the front and back piece, and not those for the lining.

I used elastic fabrics, so I don´t need a zipper.

I will upload a how to for it.

It was really fun to sew, cause I can´t imagine at the beginning how it will looked at the end. I´m happy with the result!

Two skirts in one, great for traveling or when you accidentally spill something on it ;P!

Material Notes

elastic corduroy and cotton

    funny and clever idea with 2-in-1, works well with a casual skirt like yours.

    Good job to put in pockets and make it reversible. I would have been afraid they’d show when you turn it inside out, but it looks good.

    So cute! What a great idea to make it reversible! I love it so much, are you going to upload it for the mini challenge? I would take part in that if I had time, sewing a wedding dress and planning a wedding is SO MUCH WORK!
