    Hi- I want to make a reversible dress and was thinking the tea party would work, but I am just not sure exactly how to execute it. I am thinking I would just sew together one bodice front and back, then sew to a front and back skirt to make a sort of unlined version of the dress (repeat with different fabric) and then sew the top straps and armholes right sides together? Has anyone done this or already documented it in a tutorial? Any tips on finishing the lower edge of the dress in this case?

    Thanks!

    Pippi, I think I made one very similar to your description, it was amazingly cute. Here’s the flicker link http://www.flickr.com/photos/73669617@N07/8078823380/in/set-72157631360905590

    I used bias binding to finish the hem and I love the look. I basically made two dresses and then sewed them together at the top and used bias binding on the hem.

    Nicole has an amazing tutorial on how to line it and I was inspired by this for my dress. She finishes the dress differently to me.

    PERFECT! I bet the snaps work better than buttons for reversible straps too. I love the bias tape binding. Thanks!

    Nicole has done one (or seven), and she generously sent one my way. She did a tutorial for it- http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com/2011/01/tea-party-for-small-one.html

    When I read this post my first though was the one you made Heidi! It so cute!

    Thanks Mama_knowles! Pippi, I tend to use snaps for almost everything rather than buttons, unless it’s a really formal/important piece or it would majorly change the look (ie trench coat), mainly because I have a snap press, so easy.

    Matilda occasionally reverse’s her dress so it would work.

    Thank you for your sweet compliments.
