In my mind it is appropriate to wear “Halloween” clothes starting Oct 10-ish then abruptly put them away November 1st. However, “Fall” clothes can be worn from Sept 23rd (or when the weather turns cold) through the Thanksgiving Holiday. Call me weird that is just the way I feel.
Even though this is the way I feel my pocket book says..”I don’t think so.” Therefore, I have to get creative like make a Temporary Ruffled Pumpkin Shirt and make a REVERSIBLE dress for baby girl. Why reversible…so for 2 weeks she can wear it like this.
Then for Thanksgiving, pumpkin patches, apple picking she can wear it like this…
Did you notice the knife pleats at the bottom??? LOVE, this detail.
It is rather simple- However I will say if you are going to add a trim like I did be prepared for a little more work.
Here are a few snapshots of the details. If you would like a tutorial let me know.
The knife pleats…
I love ideas like this.
#1. They save you time because you are only making one dress rather then two.
#2. It is much more economical. Especially if you are able to make it with scraps & material you picked up form a MOPS Swap! hehe!
#3. It can be worn much longer and your hard work is not short lived!
I hope you have enjoyed and has got you thinking of what you can make reversible!
I am sharing this at these wonderful parties.
