Out of all the items I make, the Reversible Skirt has to be one of my favourites. Since making my first one, customers seem to love them and the orders are flowing in!
I think the biggest appeal of the reversible skirt, is it offers two unique and completely different looks in the one garment. Any fabric can be used, either 100% cotton or high quality cotton jersey, and with so many choices out there – the possibilites are endless.
So Much Choice – Unique Fabrics
If your little one fancies floral on one side but monster trucks on the other, I can do that for you! The fabrics can be similiar colours or completely different. As each side is only visible at one time, you don’t have to worry about clashing colours.
The skirts can also be made in a large range of sizes, from newborn to teen – a huge bonus if you’re wanting matching outfits for siblings of different ages.
Another fab option is to add a decorative hem. I’ve done a few now with a pom pom trim, but tassels or lace work nicely as well. Also they’re perfect for any season, as the skirts can be worn with sandals in the summer or tights and boots in the winter. They’re just so versatile!
Another option you might like to consider, is having hair clips or headbands made to match each side of the beautiful prints. Then your little one would never be without the perfect hair accessory, whichever side they chose to wear. Co-ordinating dribble bibs are another popular option.
With all these possibilities, there’s no wonder I love making them. As you can see from the photos, they’re really stunning. If you visit my Facebook page Pickles&JJ, there’s many more in the album section to give you some inspiration. But don’t forget, as always, the fabric choice is yours!
