This is a very nicely made dress, you did a great job with the top stitching. Denim dresses never go out of style, so I think you'll be enjoying this dress for a long time.

I'm amazed that you tackled this dress after only sewing for 5 months. Great Job!

I wish I could have sewed like this after five months! It's just adorable. I love the denim.

This dress looks really nice in the picture even though you think your denim may be a bit too heavy. The fit looks really good too.

Fabulous dress! You shouldn't regret the topstitching as it really makes the dress. Well done! I can't believe you have only been sewn for five months! Keep up the great work!

Denim was the perfect chose. You took it from ho-hum to fabulous. And you look fab in it.

Uh oh - I totally covet this dress! It looks terrific and I love the "surprise" polka dot facings and linings. It looks terrific on you - perfect for summer! Excellent job!

I think your choice of denim and contrasting top stitching looks great - much better than the patter sleeve versions. Nice job!

Really nice, I love it! The belt is not too short from my point of view, I think I saw something just like that at Anthropologie...

Oooh. So Cute! I love the versatility of the Simplicity Project Runway patterns. Great Job!

It looks pretty smashing to me from your photos. Great fit, cute addition of the tie, even the top-stitching looks good from here. Keep it up, you are on a roll!

This is really nice. I love the denim with contrasting top-stitching. Looks great on you! Sometimes when I first read through a pattern I'll go through with a highlighter and highlight a bar along the section that applies. It's saved me from mistakes before.

For some reason I can't make the small picture get any larger, but what I can see looks pretty good! Well done.
