I really loved this pattern. I liked the 2 sides - I was able to use it for an nfl and ncaa team cheerleader uniform. You definitely only want to use the 2 colors in the skirt on one side, but it worked out really well. My girls loved it!
With a few changes it was easy to make this non reversible. I added 1/4 inch (cut them 1 3/4 inches) on the width of the end inverted pieces of the skirt so I could do a double 1/4 inch back seam. After hemming ends of back I made pleats as directed. I did not care for how the top was put together. I redrew a front lining piece by placing the top and bottom front pieces together overlapping seam allowance. I sewed the front to back at shoulder seam then sewed armhole, neck and back seam. I turned right side out pulling front through shoulder seam. Pressed and then sewed side seam as shown. Finished as directed. I think it turned out okay.
This came together much easier than I thought it would. I made it reversible and it really wasn’t a problem. I used light weight cotton and it worked beautifully. I originally had bout a knit for one side but decided against it after reading another review saying the knit she used made things too bulky. I would not hesitate making this pattern again.
Great experience. Easy to follow the directions. The outfit is so cute
