NounEdit

rever (plural revers)

  1. The upper part of some upper garments (such as a shirt or jacket) that folds back at or near the neck to give the appearance of a collar or lapel. Unlike a collar, the rever is always formed from the same piece of fabric as the rest of the garment's bodice.
    • 1895, Sophie Klug, The Art of Dressmaking, page 64:
      It is a good plan to baste around close to the edge, until the rever is either pressed or stitched, especially if the latter is to be the trimming.
    • 1939, The Homestead - Issue 1214, page 11:
      Turn in the edges of facing and stitch over fronts, leaving top edge of rever shape open for inserting pocket.
    • 1968, Bertha Moulton, Garment-cutting and Tailoring for Students, page 214:
      Turn facing over, and on the right half of jacket, commence basting from end of rever to the bottom edge, keeping the seam a little to the inside of jacket.

      With wrong side facing and contrast wool, pick up and knit through double fabric, 20 sts. acros top of left rever, 36 across back of neck and 20 from right rever.
