TWO FACED WRAP DRESS.
Apart from being a useful hobby, sewing is a creative way to show your personality.
Since I got a bag full of remnants at a good price in October, I’ve been trying to figure out how to use two of the same in different colours, in the same project. Until I got to the conclusion of making a dress with them two.
Because they are just too much on their own, I tried to think about a simple dress, no buttons or ruffles or anything that would make it a “dressy dress “. So I went for a wrap dress. But I didn’t want to give up on one of the colours and hide it behind the other, so instead I designed a two-faced dress, you can wear it to one side or the other.
What’s interesting about this project is that it was the first time I tried to transform a pattern from a blouse I had made this year before; elongating it and giving it volume to the skirt on the sides.
Once I had my four panels cut, I sewed together the two back ones and then added the two fronts by sewing then on the shoulders and sides.
The idea at first was to make one side of the dress one colour and the other one the other colour; but when I had the sleeves sewn and gathered, I tried them on the opposite colour and I loved how they look, so vibrant! I could do this because the sleeves I chose were bell sleeves and their sides are straight. So I sewed them there and hemmed the whole dress.
And to finish it I added the two strips that tie it together and make it wearable. A perfect spring dress!
