I have an exciting new sewing tutorial for you! It’s a free sewing pattern for a reversible shift dress – or LBD (little boxy dress), as I like to call it.
The dress can be worn two ways; as a pleated crewneck…
…or a simple v-neck.
You will need
- Paper for drafting the sewing pattern
- Muslin to test the pattern
- Bias tape (0.5″ or 1.25mm wide) to test the pattern
- Final fabric*
- Matching bias tape (0.5″ or 1.25mm wide) for final dress
* I used a light to medium weight polyester suiting fabric.
You can make your own bias tape, especially for the test version of the dress. For the final garment, I used a ready-made black bias tape to match my final dress fabric.

How to wear
Just a little sneak peek of the ways you can wear this dress once you've made it. This LBD is really versatile, so you can change its look by adding a belt or a statement necklace.
It's winter, so I've been wearing the dress with layers, like a shirt underneath or a cropped sweater on top.
