The great thing about dresses is their versatility. Whether you are meeting friends for lunch, going to church, or headed out to a sports event, dresses are a comfortable and fashionable article of clothing you will want to have in your spring wardrobe. Stitch up several spring dresses and you will never have to wonder what to wear to your next event.
Asymmetrical hem dress
A springtime favorite, short-sleeved dresses with asymmetrical hems are the perfect all-occasion dresses. Their casual style makes them a good choice for walks in the park, picnics, sporting events, or running errands. Choose medium-weight cotton or linen fabrics for best results when sewing asymmetrical hem dresses.
Vintage-style boxy dress
If you want to experiment with sewing using bold and colorful fabrics, the classic vintage-style boxy dress is for you. This style is carefree and comfortable and is perfect for accessorizing with statement shoes and leggings. Its knee-length and high-collar features make it a great choice for wearing to events where you want a more modest style of dress.
High-slit maxi dress
If you want to sew a springtime dress that is breezy but still provides plenty of coverage, look no further than the high-slit maxi dress. A natural for evening events, such as dinner parties or outdoor barbeques, the high-slit maxi dress is the perfect combination of casual and elegant. Choose petite or bold floral fabrics to stitch up a dress that is sure to become one of your favorites.
Grab some lightweight knit fabric in your favorite neutral shade to create a wrap dress that will be right at home at the office or for a lunch or dinner date. Neutral fabrics make a great backdrop for that fashionable jewelry you want to show off with your new dress. A wrap dress is easy to make, and you can alter the hem length to make it suitable for the workplace or a little shorter for casual wear.
Loose shift dress
Everyone needs at least one dress to wear around the house. The shift dress is the perfect dress for those days at home when you want to relax in the backyard or invite a neighbor over for lunch. Choose your favorite color or print fabric and create a shift dress that is as light and airy as a springtime breeze.

The hardest part will be deciding which of the fabulous spring fabrics to choose from when planning your next sewing project.
