My cheat dress, lol

I spent some time out of state with my family.  My mom taught me more about sewing machines, different techniques, and how to fix the tension (I'm new to sewing).  I've had major issues with my sewing machine's tension, but with her tips I was able to adjust it in no time.  I also got this cheater material, lol.  The top was already gathered, and the different pattern material was already sewed in.    I sewed it together in the back, sewed ribon on for the straps, and made a growth hem.  I was glad to make something and practice just working with my sewing machine, lol.  I'm also so glad to have my sewing machine fixed.  Today I'll be working on cutting out fabric for another dress.  Here's a picture of my complete dress for dd:
