Sometimes it’s faster to just start over

And cut a whole new dress from an old one instead of slaving to make the old one fit.

Thank you, Cynthia Rowley, my new go-to girl. I think I own all her Simplicity patterns now.

I’m using a variation of this 2584 tunic. The A neckline, the B length and none of the sleeves.

Of course,  I had to reverse the front and back, so the back pieces of the new dress are cut from the front of the old one. Which means I almost had a patch pocket on my tush.
