Reversible seams

If I wanted to make a costume reversible does anyone know how to do the seams? I need to re-do my terra costume and I thought if I could line it with a different fabric I could have another dress for something else.

Thanx

not sure if this is what your talkin about...bt if ya sew it so virtually all the seams are hidden inbetween the two layers that may make it reversable. but dont know if tht i wahat ya mean...

having it be reversible is basically enclosing all ur raw seams onto the inner-inside of the garment^_^

for example...an FFX-2 Yuna Gunner pink hoodie.
I sewed two layers together, (right sides of fabric on the *inside*)
Left about 3" along a non-noticable seamline, then fliped it inside out, and thus now the *right* sides of the fabric are on the outside.
And all my raw seamlines are on the inside and fully enclosed.

im not sure if that makes anysense. but okay. i guess if it is terra's dress, it is essentially a tube-dress.
So u put one "tube" inside the other, right sides facing eachother.
then hem the stop of it
then hem the bottom of it, but leave 3-4 inches of space at the bottom-back to enable you to fit ur hand in to flip it inside out after.

then after u flip it inside out, you can do a small "invisible" seam-line to close up the 3-4" gap^_^

then iron it so the top and bottom hems are crisp and sharp. u may want to do an addition seam along the top and bottom to keep them crisp.

i hope that made sense and was of some help X_X im not tht good at explanations sorries

you would most likely have to line it to hide all the ugly seam-age. to line something- basically- you just make two of the same garment and sew them ugly sides in- though it can get a bit more complicated than that.

Yah, it tends to be one of those things that works in theory and should be simple but will cause a massive headache.
