I have done this a time or two, especially with activewear. It's great to be able to reproduce and redesign for yourself or someone else; and bartering is even better! Go Steelers :-)

I'm not interested in tennis dresses for myself or anyone I know, but I enjoyed reading about the process of your creation of these nice garments. You're lucky to have this hairdressing-dressmaking service exchange going on! Unique!
