I’ve always wanted to sew something reversible for my little Missy. The idea of a reversible top or dress is so fun, plus everything I see always looks adorable. Unfortunately, it’s just too hot where we live to wear anything double layered. (My daughter is just like me, always running hot…)
I figured we could my Apron Top Pattern would be the perfect way to go reversible. The top is halter style and open in the back. (That way she would get a little “breeze” and not get too hot.)
I made this top using my Apron Top Tutorial.
The reversible top is made almost the exact same way, as the original top. (The bodice was already double layered with the facing.) The only thing you need to do to make it reversible is to cut 2 of the bodice bottoms, put them right sides together and sew them together 1/4 inch from the edge around the sides and bottom. Then flip it right side out, iron the edges and continued on following the tutorial.
*** Update*** I uploaded the pattern for this top. You can find it on the Apron Top Tutorial Page.
For this version, I used a fat quarter set from Riley Blake, called Promenade. To have enough fabric for the bodice bottom, I pieced together 2 fat quarters and then hid the seam by covering it with a contrasting 1 inch ruffle strip.
Now, if only I could get my hands on more of that yellow polka dot fabric I used on the straps, I would love make a pair of coordinating shorts!
