Seamstress Patti

What to do on a three day weekend? Make two dresses, of course.
These are basically the same dress pattern, with refashioned tank-top tops and attached skirts out of fabric scraps. I wasn't entirely pleased with the teal dress, so I ripped it up on today and started over. It was pulling at the waist, and I thought the tank-top with that green binding looked like a 1970s gym shirt. I took all of that off and made bias tape out of the bottom of the tank. I'm not totally thrilled with how that looks either, so it's still a work in progress, but I do like the skirt with the ruffled top. Tim Gunn or Studio Adventures, can I get a consultation?
