I've been in a reversible phase for awhile and have noticed something. In almost every case one side tends to gets a lot more wear than the other. In fact, in most cases, one side gets all the wear, especially when the kid for whom it was made is in control of picking sides. I'm starting to wonder if it's worth double-siding stuff after all.

What do you think about reversible clothes? Two for the price of one? Or just a waste of the second layer?


  1. Personally, I would love to have a reversible skirt. I think that would be so convenient.
    But kids have their own opinions...

  2. I love sewing reversible clothing, but mostly for selfish reasons - no hemming or turning under of edged required. I would love for my kids to actually utilize the reversible nature of the clothing, but I think I get excited by reversible clothing much more than they do. Come to think of it, I get way more excited about many of my sewing ideas than my kids do...

  3. By the way, which side of the skirt did she like best? They are both darling!

  4. the green side, oddly enough for this girl. I would blame wool on the inside for her dislike of the flower side, but they all tend to pick one side even when they are the same fabric.
