Good job , I am especially impressed that this is one of your first projects. It is cute! Your choice of fabric is cute too. I started with just a simple handbag last year about this time after not sewing-like you, just mending and hemming-for 25 years. I have gotten discouraged a few times and so I decided at first to sew the "very easy" patterns like wrap skirts, shifts, simple knit tops (to me they were so much easier than regular complicated patterns), simple bags and tops and the like. Also I remember someone recommended sewing a lot of children's clothes for practice, especially sleepwear. There have been such helpful people here, just browsing around I have learned so much and the correct size, alterations, technique, fabric, etc. Congrats on a nice sundress, it is too bad the area you live is cooler than sundress weather. I bet that dress would be very cute with a bolero or a cardigan, maybe you could get some wear out of it.

Your dress turned out very nicely, and it sounds like it was fairly complicated as well. Good tip on turning the straps - I'll definitely keep that one in mind!

Your dress is very lovely - looks really good on you and the material is so pretty. When you are sewing dresses/linings that are going to be washed it would be a good idea to wash before sewing - that way you will avoid any shrinking, etc. I really hope you will get to wear this dress - it's too cute to just hang in a closet!!

You are being very hard on yourself. The dress is well done and it looks great on you.

Pretty dress, and you've got the figure to wear it. That's a pretty complex project for a beginner. Kudos to you.
