Using the "Wrong Side" of Fabric

Using the "Wrong Side" of Fabric

As we mentioned in our Jamaica Plain Gem House Tour this week, one of the recent changes we made to our kitchen was sewing a neutral colored sink skirt to break up the intense amount of saturated colors in our home. When we were designing the skirt, it dawned on us to create a tonal effect by using both sides of the fabric...

The top part of the skirt is theoretically the "wrong side" of the fabric and the bottom border is the intended side. We're happy with the result. It would have been an awfully boring sink skirt had it been all one color brown.

Have you used the "wrong side" of fabrics to good effect?
