Great job. Well worth all the effort to achieve results such as these. No wonder your daughter was happy with her dress.

Ruth, this is such an incredible dress. Your topstitching is perfect and the way the waistband matches up in front - wow!! Your daughter looks very happy.

Well, I don't have any trouble AT ALL believing how many complimented her on this dress. It's AWESOME! And Christa's tip for using the upholstery thread for the topstitching is PERFECT. I'd better get me some upholstery thread -- ha!

Fabulous dress. I'll bet you'll be sewing another one before too long if she's still growing! It looks adorable on her, no wonder she loves it. Great review.

Your daughter's dress looks so good. The topstitching is terrific, and the zipper looks perfect, what a great job with all those pieces!

The topstitching is wonderful. It looks very comfortable and practical for young teen. Cute, but modest.

Great job on this dress!! Your review is so helpful, especially the part about how you did your topstitching. I think I am going to have to get one of those feet!
