A very quick and simple way to make a dress into something new and very very flattering is to make it a swing dress! These types of dresses are snug at the chest and arms and flare out a lot after the chest, creating an exaggerated bell look (very perfect for the pregnant ladies as well). This project is perfect for those dresses that are a bit too big or a bit wide or boxy. I took my dress down 3 sizes using this little tutorial.
