2-in-1 Shirt & Wrap Dress Sew-Along

During this particular sewalong, we utilized Simplicity 1880 (also a display version is Simplicity 0344) to make either a shirt waist or faux wrap style dress. This 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. Make your own version and follow along from the posts below (please note all posts are in order left to right, top to bottom):
