Once upon a time a girl named Indigo played with her Gran's sewing machine... the rest is fabric hoarding, sewing addicting history!

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!

oh wow... I think you just helped me without knowing it! GREAT Advice Jane!!
