My Love Affair with Dresses

I love dresses.  My closet is filled with dresses, about 15 and counting.  Dresses are also one of my favorite things to sew.  Some may see this as a problem, but I think it's one of the best things ever.  Dresses are the perfect wardrobe staple, and I say this being a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl.  

They are easy, there is no figuring out what top to wear, you just throw a dress on and move on to picking out cute accessories.  You can dress them up or down.  They can be multi-seasonal, leggings and boots in the colder months, sandals and sunnies for the warmer ones.  The best part is that a good dress that fits you well can make you feel like a million bucks.  When you feel good in what you wear it instills a confidence in you like nothing else. 

This is why I am in love with dresses.  I enjoy being able to just throw one one, slip on my ballet flats and head out the door.  Do I feel guilty that I own close to 20 different dresses, no.  I plan on making a few more for the summer.  My job this summer will not require me to wear closed toe shoes everyday, or wear paint clothes so my dresses will get lots of use in the coming months.
