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.

You've definitely inspired me to do something in denim!

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.
