I love it!! You look fabulous. I think leaving the zipper sort of raw is a great touch...so unique.

and scrappy, WTF, LUCKY!! I wish I waited and got it for $5 hahaha! I had to pay $16 or something ridiculous! And look at it! The whole thing maybe took one day. And like I said... I don't DO patterns, so it probably took me longer than normal Tongue

I would love that dress if only the zipper were not out there for everyone to see

i really like the whole look ya got. and the exposed zip is very cool, the only thing i would have done diff is turned over the top tabs of the zipper, but yours is unique that way!

I LOVE pinup inspired clothing, but I spend all my time making kids clothes. Will definitely have to start making some for myself. Well done you killed it! Grin

It's awesome. I love pockets in anything, especially dresses! Exposed zipper = awesome

Great job! I just made this pattern over the weekend, and it was my first time sewing clothing. I agree with you-- the pockets are great, and I was surprised how easy they were! This pattern is definitely versatile as far as the skills needed... I feel like a pro after this one. And I love your version, and the modified zipper. You did a great job, and you should be proud!

The exposed zipper is awesome! I wish more dresses and skirts had them - they make a dress totally stand out!! -x-

That's all there is and there ain't no more....
