The Reversible Teacup Shift Dress

May 8, 2008

I saw this blue and rose material and fell in love with it. To some, it might seem dowdy but there is a certain class to some dowdy patterns. Sort of like the beauty you see in an antique teacup which is what this material reminded me of. I handmade the fabric buttons myself which adds a sweet touch. It is of course, reversible with a yellow polka dotted flip side. I would have given the other side a name too but I thought "The Reversible Teacup Dotted Swiss Sunshine Shift Dress" might trip over the tongue.

That is adorable!! Did you use a pattern, or just wing it?

I can't even wrap my brain around "reversable"....that would mean it has to be, um, perfect inside too?? wow.

hehe thanks. I looked all over for a simple shift dress pattern with elastic but couldn't find anything just right so I did wing it. Mistakes were made but I'd say for the most part they were correctable:) But yes, the reversible part sometimes makes me want to pull my hair out, especially if you make a mistake. Everything must be sewn in a specific order for it to work.

So adorable! I have two boys and can't sew (trying to learn), but if I had girls I would totally make them this dress!
