Reversible Blouse and Dress Free Download and Video

Today you can learn how to make my Reversible Blouse and Dress Pattern that I created especially for beginning clothing sewers! This is such a fun and easy pattern! I’ve created instructions and a 8.5″ x 11″ printable pattern! All you need to do is tape the patterns together. How easy is that?

This pattern comes in both the dress and blouse sizes with my typical sizes of XS-XL. I use the same Child Measurements Chart that I use on all my sewing patterns, which is also laid out in the downloadable instructions for this pattern.

Need more of a visual? You’re in luck! My big news today is that I have done a video on Riley Blake’s Cutting Corners with Cindy Cloward showing the steps for creating this outfit. There are examples in the Paris and Company™ and Dainty Blossoms™ fabric. Check out the video by going here! NOTE: This video has been postponed and will go live May 1st.


Aren’t these girls darling? Gweny and Mae are two of my good friend Aimee’s children who happily agreed to pose for me! I’ll have samples of this outfit in my booth at Quilt Market in my new line Songbird™ (which I will reveal fully soon!).

Big news to announce tomorrow afternoon (yes, don’t get antsy but I won’t be announcing until the afternoon).

Hope you enjoy the pattern!

    I have 8 granddaughters, ages 6 mos. to 9 years. I love to sew for them and having top notch free patterns is a lifesaver. Thanks so much.

    Hi Carina,

    Just thought to mention that there is a way to have single pieces of front and back for the reversible op/dress if you fold the fabric from the sides towards the middle and then placing the pattern on the folds. It saves on extra sewing. 🙂

    Looove the idea and will deffinately use it for my dd’s summer warrobe this year. 🙂 Thanks
