This was the second project I wrote for Sewing World magazine, quite a while ago now. I always like the idea of multi function garments. I have a small obsession working out if a garment can be reversible!
I designed this top to be wearable as a top or skirt. With the addition of a large sash at the side seams it made it adjustable at the waist or chest appropriate to the wearer.
To illustrate the idea of how to wear it I made my daughter a coordinating top and leggings and submitted the photos with the project. Projects are submitted several months ahead of the publishing date so these photos were taken in January. We had to come inside for cuddles every few minutes!
The origianl sample of this style is stillone of ella’s favourite items, worn more as a skirt than a top. If you would like to make this back issues of the magazines are availabel to buy from the Sewing worlsd magazine.
