A Reversible Skirt

I have been wanting to make a reversible skirt for a long time. My girls wear skirts all the time, and they inevitably get dirty. Now you can just flip it around! I love making skirts too. They are the perfect use for those extra 1/2 or even 1/3 yds that I have laying around that don't necessarily go with anything else. I used my last bit of Flower Power for this side. I love that big bouquet of roses in the middle.

I added some little squares on this side and flipped part of it down and added some little yellow heart buttons for contrast.

For this side I just used a little blue flower print that I found at Joanns. I thought it was cute. I admit I think that Joanns is getting better with the quality of some of the fabrics that they carry.

Right now I am working on one for Felicity and hope to put together a little tutorial on how to do these because it really isn't too difficult. I like the weight of this skirt as well. The two layers gives it a nice heft.

We also painted out kitchen this weekend. Yay! Almost all of the rooms in our house are painted taupe, which is a nice color. I wanted something a little more cheery for the kitchen though. I love how it turned out!


  1. Your kitchen looks so homely and exudes a lovely sense of warmth! I'm glad you are so happy with it :) Adore the little reversible skirt, especially the little pockets to fill with treasures :) Mel xox
