A Little More Sewing - Reversible Skirts

There are lots of fabulous reversible skirt tutorials out there, but The Simple Reversible Skirt Tutorial from Fashioned By Meg was just what I needed to have a go.  These are so easy!  I tried to get Olivia to try them on for me so I could take some photos but she declined.  Apparently she only likes them "a tiny bit"... *sigh*  Well, I think they're cute.  And I think I did a darn good job for my first go!

I decided to keep one side plain.  I don't know about anyone else, but we always seem to have the problem of too many patterns amongst Olivia's clothes.  Sometimes you just need a plain skirt.  :-)

I used a double row of stitching along the bottom instead of adding a trim.  Hmmm... my sewing is a little bit CAS too, isn't it?!

These waistbands couldn't be easier...

Thanks so much to Meg from Fashioned By Meg for the fabulous tutorial!



  1. Olivia may only like them a little bit, but I think they are fab!

  2. These are awesome DD, you've done a fabulous job! Even with a boy I find too many 'clashing' patterns in clothing a lot of the time. Plain is good!

  3. Ack! So cute! These are the first finished skirts I have seen! They are adorable! Thanks for sharing!

  4. They're super cute! I kinda understand's Olivia's opinion - my grandma used to make me skirts like that all the time. I always struggled with the bunched up fabric at the elastic. Sometimes it got a little uncomfortable. That always depended on the fabric though. Also, to get it to stay on, the elastic was sometimes too tight for my liking.
