My seven-year-old was very precise and particular about what she wanted in this shirt. We sat down and worked out the sketch, then I had to figure out a pattern. I used a (much altered) RTW pattern for the basic block, and drafted the drape myself.
The construction (and pitfalls) are detailed on my blog
A fine knit with a crazy print, probably a poly-lycra blend. Very slippery and elastic.
