Reversible frock Sewing Instructions:

Cut Back part of Frock (2 pieces)
Place Back parts by facing right sides together and sew along the blue line as mentioned in this picture. Leave 1cm (side seam) each side. After sewing turn right side out & Iron.
Place Front parts by facing right sides together and sew along the blue line as mentioned in this picture. Leave 1cm (side seam) each side. After sewing turn right side out & Iron
Place Back & Front parts by facing the same color together. Then fold the other color flare portions upward as shown in this picture
After folding, it looks like this. Now the back & front part of each color facing right sides together. Then Stitch along the side seams of each color part separately
Turn right sides out
