What a great way to modify a pattern for a specific purpose. Although I have no idea how to play tennis properly, it looks like you'll be stylish out there. It is quite flattering with the princess lines and the color blocking. I like it with the top, too. Is the knit fabric cotton or poly or mixture?

Woo hoo! You'll be burning up the courts in this outfit. What a great idea to make something attractive for a sport rather than slogging around in sloppy leftover clothing.

That was really clever, to look at this pattern and see a tennis dress! And then really smart, to know how to adapt it. Great job.

Nice, something like that would cost a lot of money to buy! Great job. I've found print wicking fabrics before, but not that often. Sometimes Seattle Fabric or Peak Fabrics might have them. (Great style & modifications you made.)

I agree with knits and zippers and scoop necks. What on earth are those designers thinking? Why bother? I like your alterations.
