Design of the week 3-2 and 3-9

It has been too long! I will start by apologizing, but I don't want to go overboard so I won't launch into a long explanation. Suffice it to say I have been busy, and I have been avoiding doing things online that take up time and get me all caught up.
I don't know if I told you, but a friend of mine suggested me put up "designs of the week". She suggested this several months ago, so I have no idea how far behind I am, but we can only do what we can do. I will start by putting up two sketches (not technical at all) that go along with what I would love to make now that we are moving into Spring. They're not the greatest because I scanned them on using tracing paper and a drawing paper-that has a grain-behind it.

The left is a dress...the part that looks like a vest is actually an attached bodice of the dress. It is made of a nice woven (not sure what fiber), and the skirt, sleeves, and "undershirt" are made of a cotton knit-soft and comfy. 
The dress on the right is a basic retro style dress, mid-calf, woven (possibly cotten) with short cuffed sleeves and a ruffle piece from the neck of the bodice to the waistband. Both dresses zip in back.
