FO Cotton Dress

I got a great book last Christmas filled with simple sewed outfits.  Ways to mix and match patterns to crest stuff you like.  This was my first project.  From start to finish it took only 2 hours.  A lot of that was pattern tracing.  Overall I like the 60's gel of the dress and the pattern is fun.  I wish that I had made the top a bit smaller and the dress a bit longer.  Next time!  Hard to tell in the photo but it does have a nice little split neck and the straps are funky and overlapped.
