Refashioned 70's Dress

I bought this vintage american eagle dress from the 70's on Ebay. It fit me perfectly but there were high-cut slits up the side. To make it modest I added fabric. I took the dress to the fabric store and could not find any matching fabric. The three greens in the dress are just not in style anymore. I didn't know what to do until i found some cream fabric with a close turquoise. It turned out perfectly. Besides adding some fabric in the sides, I added a band of the same fabric just under the bust to give it a finished look.
