2015 white dress inspiration

I have a thing for white dresses. Have for a long time, really! I wore one to my high school graduation at my mom's insistence, and since then have bought or made lots and lots of others, and always feel fresh and easygoing in them in the summer.

I've seriously made 1-2 white, off-white, or mostly dresses a year for the past few years! White lace is the best.

It's not summer yet, but the magazines are lightyears ahead of the weather as usual, and I found these inspirations for 2015! So many ideas and options, all in one magazine issue. I'm so drawn to the white and lace and texture, would love to make one of my own once I find the right fabrics.

All from my March 2015 InStyle...

So many ideas, right! (Some more wearable than others.) Tunic shifts, swingy tops, fit-and-flare full-skirted dresses, some very cool maxi dresses, drop-waist swingy skirts...

(I ran into Old Navy the other day and was overwhelmed by the cute springy and summery cotton dresses in fresh blues and whites. They have a ton of cute white cotton dresses, but I know I can make myself something that's better quality and in a better fit.)

Don't you think some white cotton eyelet, maybe mixed with a plain cotton, would be fun in one of these patterns?
