I'm glad you didn't take offense to my suggestion  Wink My mom was a nursing student in the early-mid 70's and the length just reminded me of pictures of her. It's not a bad thing at all. I do really love the skirt.

Anyone know of a place you can get uncut retro patterns and funky material, besides ebay? I have pictures of my mom before I was born and she had lots of cute (and some not so cute) things. It would be fun to make retro clothes for sprng and summer. My DH would get a kick out of it also since he was born in the early 60's (we have a 15 year age difference).

That is a darling pattern and the color is fun with it. I love the white belt. Definitely retro. Both lengths would have been stylish then. Maybe make another short one for fun an wear it when it's warm or over leggings, etc.

You did a great job on it and using an old pattern isn't that easy, so super marks for you!!
