Misadventures in Sewing: My First Dress

So under the direction of my mother, I made my first dress. It took almost all day, but it was a labor of love. I do love clothes. She is a tough teacher. But I must admit, even if no one else thinks it, that the dress is beautiful. Perfect for summer time and it was the perfect Sunday morning dress.  

So I can't cut to save my life. 

 I realize I prefer hand sewing to machine.
 The dress was almost finished here but not completely.

THE FINISHED PRODUCT YAYYYYYY!!!!



I HAVE THIS PROBLEM MY MOTHER LIKES TO POINT OUT, I PRETTY MUCH WEAR ANYTHING NEW AS SOON AS I GET IT. THE SAME CAN BE SAID ABOUT THIS DRESS. I WORE IT TODAY, TO CHURCH.

Question: Should I include tips on sewing since I am a beginner? Maybe what I learn could benefit someone else.

That's a beautiful dress you made :)
I prefer to sew by hand as well, the machine just throws me off my confidence bar.
