I've since made it two more times. I fixed the gaping back bodice pattern by taking out a wedge from the back bodice: 1 inch along the center edge, tapered to the lower waist/side seam corner. This did not affect the length of the waist or side seams but tightened up the center edge just enough that I no longer need a button to hold the back closed. Now it's one of my favorite summer casual dresses.

I really love this! I hope to find this pattern in my searching one of these days. Wrap dresses are so fun!

This is SO cute. And, you know, it doesn't LOOK like it's too short-waisted. I love it, and you look great in it!

Very nice! And somehow it's calling to mind a yellow shirtwaist dress my mom used to wear? Don't know how, but there's a strong connection. Love it!

The binding is a great touch!

The dress in real life wouldn't scream "1961!" if I hadn't made it in pink with pink gingham trim. The style is actually fairly neutral, and it could easily be made to look more modern in a different fabric, and with smaller pockets.

Cute, but the scary thing is that I remember dresses like this............
