My daughter will be the first zooble-based superhero! She designed the dress herself, as evidenced in the drawing above. She seems to like my interpretation. I fashioned the star out of outsized paillettes. The zoobles are reverse applique.
I’ve been a little off buying fabric lately, but I had no knit fabric on hand to make a comfy kids dress. Then DH graciously volunteered some of his old shirts for me to use for the dress. I took 3 white shirts, dyed them purple, and cut around the screen printed motifs to make the dress. The shirts took the dye slightly differently. When I constructed the skirt, I made sure to alternate the different colors when I placed the gores.
I self-lined the bodice so there would be a clean finish at the neck and armhole edges. Also, the 2 layers of fabric make a more stable base for the embellishments on the front.
