Breaking all the rules! Pattern review: Simplicity Jiffy Dress 1059

I broke so many rules with this pattern! But more on that later. Let me start from the top. It's definitely an oldie but goodie. If you're not familiar with this pattern it's a vintage Simplicity pattern from 1969. I love this pattern because on some level I'd like to think my late aunt, who…
