T-Shirt Dress

I made a new dress, and I am in love with it. It’s so comfortable!

For the pattern, I did the same thing that I did for this dress. I took my Scoop Tee Pattern and my Maxi Skirt Pattern and lined them up at the hip to make a dress.

Then for the two front pockets, I basically traced around my hand and added a seam allowance.

I’ve had this fabric for awhile. I love the print so much, but the fabric is so incredibly thin that it’s see-through. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use it because of its see-throughness, but I finally decided I would because I love those chunky stripes. I definitely have to wear an undershirt and a slip with this dress, though.

You can clearly see the undershirt through the dress.

I have tried a few ways for making my collars, but I always go back to cutting a long strip of fabric and going by feel instead of cutting a strip that is a certain percentage shorter than the neck opening. Since every fabric has such different stretch I find it hard to do it that way. Plus, I like to pull the collar fabric tighter around the deeper curves of the neck than around the more shallow curves. This video I found shows exactly what I like to do:

 

And that’s it. I love knit fabric. It is the best!
