Simplicity 1880, which I made for Sunni’s Sew-Along! I do so like this dress, but boy, is there a TON of ease built in! If I made it again, which I may, I would cut it down at least a size. I cut my usual 36 inch bust, and man oh man was there a ton of ease! Hence the title of the dress….
Otherwise, a pretty simple construction, and it looks pretty cute, if you belt it!
