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

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.)

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.

Now that's smart! Great idea.

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.

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?
