2-in-1 Shirt & Wrap Dress Sewalong

During this particular sewalong, we utilized Simplicity 1880 to make either a faux shirt or wrap style dress. This stellar pattern has some really great bones and many who sewed along, felt that it was definitely a keeper and one of those patterns they are most likely to return to again and again.
