Great basic dress pattern. Nice first dress.

Well done! A brilliant first try.

Lovely and very flattering. Perhaps a sway back adjustment (deeper darts) might help with the loose fabric at the back waistline?

This is a very good first try and I would agree with Pocket Venus on the sway back adjustment. I also think you should make it again ~ you will get an even better garment the next time!

Very nice and it does look good on you. Keep working on the fit - you'll get there before you know it!

It looks pretty good - a nice fit for your first try but agree with others - you need to do an adjustment for sway back to take care of the folds you are getting in the back waist area

I think it looks great on you. When you get the fit that you want, you will have a pattern to make over and over.
