Hello everyone!

Now the boyfriend *must* take me out for Valentine's day, right? Surely. This is my first project with an actual sewing machine (talk about being faster than going by hand), as well as my first skirt/dress.  Needless to say, it was a learning process.  I used a pattern for the skirt and made up the top, which is why it looks so wonky. Let me know what you think please!

Front:




Back: (kind of messed up, it wasn't supposed to be anything like this, actually)

Side:



I would love some advice about the sleeves/shoulders- this was my first time to do anything like them and my first "collar"- they were not supposed to be nearly off the shoulder, though it stays up fine.  Should I add some shoulder or just let the dress be daring?
Thanks!

Cute! And it has a very sexy back. Smiley My personal favorite for the sleeves is your left arm in the last picture, I think it's the most flattering for the neckline.

Celebrate we will, for life is short but sweet for certain. Climb on two by two, to be sure these days continue.
