Unpacked & Sewing

I finally finished unpacking this weekend, and after a month of not making anything, I wanted to make a dress I could finish in a day.
Here's the inspiration (a Dillard's ad from Glamour):

I almost used a satiny-type fabric like the one in the picture, but I decided I wanted to make it out of normal cotton fabric. What do you think?

Photo was taken in front of the new fireplace. I gathered the front & back instead of pleating it, but basically it's just one long square for the top, and two squares for the skirt and a belt sewed in a side seam. I'm going to get on something more complicated this week.
