Striped Swallow Designs: Desert Breeze

If you need a staple piece for this spring & summer, I have THE perfect top & dress for you! Striped Swallow Designs released Desert Breeze and I don’t know what else to say other than this is an amazing design!

If you’re looking for something trendy & boho chic, Desert Breeze is perfect for your daughter.

Desert Breeze can be made it 3 views:
Gathered skirt, Top or Dress
Straight or Flutter Sleeve
2 strap options: Plain or Tie
Easy to read instructions
Layered printing and easy taping

So naturally I did both sleeve options!

I first started with the dress, plain straps and straight sleeve. So without sounding repetitive both dresses I made from taping, cut and sewing took me about 30 mins with no interruptions. This was actually my first time doing knit binding.  I will say I was a little intimidated, but the instructions are so straight forward that it leaves no room for doubt. I used a more sturdier 2 way knit that when creased held its shape. This allowed for the binding to fold easier. ❤



The second option I did was the dress, plain ties with flutter sleeve. This knit had 4 way stretch so when creasing it really didn’t stay. This binding I got a little lazy! Sorry for the rebel status… I figured since knit doesn’t fray, I folded the knit binding and let it fold naturally and topstitched accordingly. The flutter sleeve gives it the boho chic look which reminds me of warm summer days.



I know I’ve said this before but this design is amazing and will definitely be your little ones favorite! You can purchase your copy of Desert Breeze, HERE.
