    Sooo lovely! Great Job. It’s so well done; it looks like one of those $190 dresses you see at the department stores : )

    Great fabric choice! This design looks so beautiful on but I couldn’t imagine that anything would look bad on you! Your friend did a very nice job on the pictures too! Overall a great look!

    This was a really beautiful result for a first time project! I love the color combination too and details as the scalloped bottom instead of a traditional hem or invisible hem. I am not surprised it took you quite a bit of time, as that fabric probably wasn’t the easiest you could have chosen for a first project, great that you are up for a challenge! Just keep on sewing and details will be more and more beautiful up close for every time, practice and a bit of patience does make perfect when it comes to sewing! :)

    Wow, this one’s great. Did you use a pattern? I’d love to make one myself, to wear to the wedding of my friend!
