I wouldn't mind SC using a simple OpenGL-based GUI library to provide dialogs and widgets, such as these:
CEGUI: http://cegui.org.uk/features
ImGui: https://github.com/ocornut/imgui
MyGui: http://mygui.info/#ui-tabs-13

Keeping it simple (SFML) and using one of these GUI toolkits would look non-native, but who cares, as long as it's stable and fast, and does what you want? It may be beneficial to keep the list of dependencies small even with the GUI framework.

QT isn't a bad solution, however, and many companies are using it in desktop apps, like Adobe, Amazon, Google, Microsoft (Skype), and others. It does seem to be very-widely adopted and constantly improving:
