What materials did you use? cotton for the bustier top, and what i thought was linen for the skirt. after working with it, i'm pretty sure the skirt material is synthetic of the first order.

I love your use of color and pattern! I admit to having a wardrobe of somber blacks and neutrals all solids! My fabric stash however looks like you might have purchased it ! lol! I have a wonderful West African Batik Fabric and I am determined to use it for this dress thanks to you!!! Beautiful work on both of your dresses!
