The selfmade dress

So here it is! My new selfmade dress! Got some problems while making it. Before I should have added the facing to the arm-holes, I've should have stich the facing to the collar and front of the dress. I forgot to do that, so I could get the stitches out and start all over again. But this time with the collar first. I have no idea what it is, but I have a thing for this dress model. I've made a dress like this before, well 2 dresses, and they both had the same model. Except for the waist, this time the waist is higher and it has a collar and an extra pattern (the white part). I still don't really know how I can combine it, but that will come with time and summer! Hmm... What if I should make this model my 'signature' model for dresses, when I will launch my first clothing line? Haha, okay just dreaming over here. It would be incredibly cool if it will happen, but who knows. Maybe I'm going to be a journalist! As long as I can sit behind (or in front) the sewing machine, I'm happy.
What do you think of my dress?

Nice dress! By seeing people make things like your dress I feel sorry that I don't know how to sew...
And by the way, love the H&M locket.

Great job done!!. I also have some favourite patterns which alway turn out different due to the fabric used or some changes in style. I also very much like your shoes. Buttons on shoes are always a temptation for me.OH
