My Shift Dress Collection

Hello Sewcialists,

Today, I am going to write about my love affair with the timeless silhouette – The shift dress! This style has revamped my wardrobe and has given me a choice of clothing that can be worn in this scorching heat while also looking fashionable and chic.

This ultimate style can be made in day-wear fabrics as well as more elegant fabrics and the possibilities are endless. I have to admit that the shift dress has become a staple in my closet and I will be surely making many more in the coming weeks. 

So here’s a peek at my favorite dresses from the past eight months.
