It's wonderful that your daughter loves this dress so much. It is a darling pattern, and your topstitching is gorgeous.

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!

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

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

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.

Gorgeous dress. The topstitching detail is fabulous. And I just love it with the red leggings.

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!

That is SO very amazing! I love it! (p.s. I'd have lengthened it as well.)
