Groooovvvvvy! The pattern takes me down memory lane, too, when I bought my very first pattern which was a Jiffy wrap skirt. Wish I still had that pattern!

You don't need to wait for a 70's or retro theme day! This is a great dress. I really enjoy seeing the reviews for retro patterns.

Looks very current, even for a 29 year old pattern! I like that you chose vaguely retro-ish fabric, too. What do you mean by "seven out of the nine", though? (ahh, nevermind, I see you edited your comment so it makes sense now! thanks!)

I love the dresses and the material suits them very well. I'd wear them both over jeans with my head held up high. Retro dresses are very Autumn 06.
