Older book, sibling rivalry, love story, maybe from the 60s

I am looking for a book that I read in middle school in the mid 90s. It is about a high school girl who feels like her older sister is much better, pretty and more popular than herself. The younger sister is the main character, and she has a love interest. Towards the middle-end of  the book, she and her love interest have a distance between them. The older sister, who just broke up, or possible cancelled a wedding, is seen with the younger sister's love interest and she misinterprets what is going on.The older sister is a selfish girl, if I'm remembering correctly. I think the younger sister goes to a party in an aquamarine dress, it's sparkly I think. I think it takes place in the 50s or 60s. It is similar to "Seventeenth Summer" and "Sister of the Bride". I was mistaken in thinking it was the latter of the two books. I'm pretty sure the title is only one word, maybe the main character's name. I know this is a very vague description, but anyone who has any idea what this book might be, please give me some tips! Thanks!
