This is an adorable dress on you. I can see where a thinner knit would give a different look, but I like this fabric as well.

I think your dress looks great. Remember that when you're walking around, there's not a sandwich board next to you where people can see what the dress was "supposed to" look like :). This looks like a perfect outfit for a cold winter day. And in a less chunky fabric, no one will even realize that you've sewed the same pattern, so all of your hard work on the fitting will not go to waste.

What a tremendously helpful review. And I like this dress on you, it has sort of a severe, yet funky vibe that I like very much. Sew it again.

This dress looks lovely. I think you should upgrade your skill level to at least advanced beginner if not intermediate. You really know what's going on in a pattern and are able to make clever alterations and amendments. Well done! THis looks like a cozy great dress to wear and that cowl neck looks excellent.

Nice dress, and wow, what an incredibly thorough and helpful review! If you're a beginner, you must be a very intuitive one, because you're thinking miles ahead of what I'd call a "beginner." :)
