You did a great job for someone relatively new to sewing! It's very flattering on you! I made mine in black and white and love it! It's so comfortable and cute at the same time. I think I'll dig my pattern out and make another one. And NO you're not the only one who has trouble with sizing. I'll be making mine a 10 instead of a 12.

Charming little 60's dress and the teal cotton is a perfect fabric choice. Your zipper looks just great, and you look lovely in your dress. -Lily

Great dress! I love the retro look and color. Completely understand the sizing thing. I'm working on a wadder review that had the same kind of issue.

I had a dress like this in the 60's!. It was hot lime green on top, navy on the bottom with navy and lime green pin . Very happenin'. You did a great job.

Very cute. I think that in the 60s ( I was a teenager....there was a lot more ease throught the hips than there is was normal. You did a great job making the darts make it more 21st century. I remember this pattern when the original was out. I bought the pattern recently for old times sake.

I think that fabric is perfect for the dress. Great job. I have picked up and put down this pattern several times. I really like. Thank you for the very helpful review.

Very cute dress - I bet the 60's party was fun. I too have found that Simplicity patterns have a HUGE amount of ease in them - don't know why they do it but they do. Wish they didn't!
