This dress is a variation of BurdaStyle’s Danielle Dress with sleeves that are based on the sleeves from the JJ Blouse.
I used the front bodice and waistband of the Danielle Dress as is, but changed the rest. The back bodice was lowered quite a bit, but has the same square shape as the front bodice. I used a simple gathered square for the skirt and there is an invisible zipper up the back for closure.
For the puff sleeves I extended the JJ Blouse sleeve and then I added bias tape around the arm opening and a fabric covered button closure.
My mom bought the fabric for me at a thrift shop and I bought the zipper secondhand at a rummage sale.
Cotton, invisible zipper, fabric covered buttons.
