The dress is very cute. The only suggestion I would have is to add more length in the back than the front. I am blessed (sarcasm) to huge butt, so I get the rise up in the back. It's no fun, no matter how much you tug it down, it goes right back up.

I love that style! I also really like the material you used. It looks fab.

This looks terrific!  I also love the spin shot; what a great skirt!

The one suggestion I would make would be to alter the pattern slightly to raise the waistline a bit.  At the moment it's slightly dropped, so there's a horizontal seam across her hips (especially visible in the second photo).  If you raise the waistline to where the dress creases at the small of her back (third photo), you'll be able to show off her curves with a more tailored bodice, with her hips exaggerating the flare of the skirt.

Other than that, and even with that, it's a fab dress, *especially* for a first attempt!
