I saw this cute pink glasses fabric and had to do something with it!  Other than that it's pretty true to the original Mary Quant mini (except a little longer because otherwise that would be impractical)

The pink glasses cotton print is underlined and the dress itself is made with black poly suiting as is the Peter Pan collar and sheer sleeves. There's a 22" zip and 1" buttons on the cuffs.
