B found this luscious, soft, and rich bamboo knit at Gala Fabrics when we were in Victoria. I knew it would make a great t-shirt dress!! I used the same pattern I'd used when I made my dress from the panel knit Ruthie gave me and interrupted my already blogged sweatshirt making to make this little dress because I wanted to work with the material before using it in the sleeves of her Linden Sweatshirt!!!
|In person, the sleeves do not stand stiffly at attention as they seem to here!!!|
|My Mannie doesn't have a very cute bootie!!!|
|I am inordinately proud of this neck band!!! In the pattern, only the v-neck version has one. The others are merely folded under so I made this one per the instructions from these tutorials:|
