To echo previous posters, the parasol is not the greatest, the shoes should be different, and perhaps you can swap out the lace for something of higher quality. As Clueless Case said, Cluny, eyelet, and Venise are all good laces and you can even find them at Wal*Mart for not too much money. Otherwise, fabric stores or online sources are good-- just look for cotton lace, not synthetic. And this is a personal peeve of mine but I'm glad other people mentioned it, it's a shame to wear such a cute outfit and then just blow out your hair and leave it. Curl it, pigtail it, wear an adorable wig, just please don't ignore the hair!

I must say for a first try, and for something you sewed yourself, it's really admirable. Keep up the good work!
