As we head into spring around here (sorry all you people who will still be dealing with snow for the next four months) dresses become my go-to.  Swing dresses are one of my favorite dress styles to wear because they’re so comfortable, and can easily be dressed up or dressed down. Throw a swing dress on with wedges and a statement necklace for date night (like I did here), or dress it down with a simple pair of leopard flats. I even styled one with a high pony, sandals, and my denim jacket tied around my waist that you can see here. The options are endless, and you look put-together no matter what!
And the best part is that they’re super easy to make. Find the Perfect Summer Swing Dress sewing tutorial right here!
Happy Wednesday!

    I love this!! I’m looking for inspiration for work clothes for a casual office environment and I think this look would work well! I tried clicking on the link for the leopard flats but it doesn’t seem to be working.

    Blue is def. your colour, you look gorgeous in this dress!

    I like the style…but a little short. My 12 year old won’t wear skirts that short.

  4. Love love love! I want to try and sew a dress like this! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Paige Cassandra Flamm says:

    I’ve been searching for something this nice blue color because of you ๐Ÿ˜‰ I don’t own one piece of blue clothing! I can never find something I like so I just might make it myself. I made this swing dress in a nice chartreuse (purely coincidence that I had enough material the same color as your dress!) and I love that dress. Now if it will only warm up, but like you mentioned I have 4 more months of snow. boo.

  11. Raquel Pedroza says:

    This blue is my FAV!! I would have never thought to pair with leopard, love it!

  12. I have a dress like this and I love it! Too bad I won’t be able to wear it for four months without tights/leggings!

    Excuse me as I wipe the tears from my keyboard! We’ll have snow for months still haha
    Love that dress, and of course, the leopard flats! xo,D

  14. I love the striped one! Where do you get your fabric from? This blue is beautiful too. Love it!

  15. Lisa G. says:

    And do you always use the same type of knit, with a bit of lycra in it?

  16. Tricia McSwain says:

    You’ll have to keep us updated about those shoes. I know they are suppose to br more comfortable than most ballet flats and are super cute…but that price tag!
