ok i had no idea really what i was doing i just got an idea and went w/ it. it took my about 4 hours to do and a whole lotta irioning.... though all the work i put into it it didnt turn out to good, but im a beginer...
it would probalby look better if i wasnt to lazy to put it on. the one with the black ribbon is a very crude halter top and the other is a skirt w/ a slit up the middle.... i tried  my best...

That's cute. A tip for next time though, If you iron up the hem 2 times, instead of one, you won't run the risk of the fabric unraveling, and it'll look neater.

Good job for your first time though.

as a beginner, you maybe should try making stuff out of tshirt fabric or cut up old tshirts. The hems don't fray and you don't have to be perfect if you're using fabric that stretches!

everyone starts out as a beginner, my advice is to make yourself a sewing journal and keep track on what you feel you do good and what you feel you do wrong, what pattern fit what didnt etc. And your fabric looks like its satin or something, thats the worst stuff to learn on, it slips and slides and ravels making it a pain in the assafras for even experienced seamstresses. I recommend kwik sew patterns for beginners, and stating out on a beginner pattern, all in all I think you should be pleased with your effort, if you learned something from it and you had fun thats what counts.
