We wanted to know more about the clothes, so Alison spoke with figure skating dress designer Pat Pearsall, who gives us the scoop on the dresses she designed for two-time Olympian and PyeongChang 2018 bronze medallist Mirai Nagasu, what she thinks of mesh matching, and how to avoid wardrobe malfunctions. Plus, Jill reports about her amazing time at U.S. Speedskating’s Tour of Olympians!
