After cutting Butterick 5862 dress, I realized the pattern paper had "Face Up" printed on - my fabric was cut in the regular way, face down, resulting the wrap to go left side on top instead of right side.
I don't have any more fabric to re-cut them.
Should I make a wrong-way-wrap dress, or would it be totally ridiculous? Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Wrap it the wrong way - you will be the only one who knows... we all do this one somewhere along the way.

Absolutely, wear it. It's far from a fatal mistake. Just think of it as a new fashion esthetic. Sewers are their own designers.

I can tell you I'd never notice (unless I was the one wearing the dress).

I'd definitely make the dress. If it turns out well, you'll at least have a new TNT pattern!

Thank you so much, everyone! This is my first time posting to a PR message board, and I'm overwhelmed by nice and quick replies from all of you.
It was around midnight I realized what I did, and you know the feeling of being up by yourself late at night with a major mistake at hand (and, it always happens late at night )... Now I feel much better with all of your encouraging posts. I willl definately make the dress and try to post my first review, with a warning for the "Face Up" cutting.

I did the same thing to a pattern, made it up, but it took me forever to realize the directions weren't wrong and I was backwards. I wore it and got lots of complements.

I have way too many yards to count, and I will never use them up, but I will die trying!

I did the same type of thing the other day while working on Simplicity 2181 (I think...and am too lazy to go look at the pattern), the view with the twist. I was squeezing it on to scrap fabric from another project, and didn't think once about what direction I had my pieces and ended up cutting both for the same side of the top without enough to recut. I decided since it was going to be a bit bunched anyway, I could flip the smaller piece and no one will know the difference. I wore it the other day, and nothing seems off. Except to me, because I know something didn't work.
