I made this tee shirt dress based off a drawing by one of my students (I’m an elementary art teacher). I had so much fun bringing a drawing to life! I frankenpatterned two pieces to make the dress— I used a Burda 2-2011 long sleeve tee pattern and an a-line skirt pattern I drafted. The fabric is a super drape-y rayon knit, so I underlined the whole dress with a cotton interlock. I used a fusible tricot at the hem to help make the scallops.
