Twirly T-Shirt Dress

This is the 3rd T-shirt dress I made for Rebekah.  See #1 and #2 here.  I used SewBaby's Twirly Dress Pattern.  The pattern had a section on how to cut your shirt, and also how to make your own bodice.  I made it a size 6, which called for 8 skirt panels.  However, I didn't have quite enough fabric, so hers has only 7, which isn't really noticeable.  But if you're going to be buying fabric just for this dress, make sure you get more than 2 yards if you're making size 6!  (I bought my fabric a year ago from Walmart for $1/yard so it was just sitting there waiting to be used)  I also added a ruffle and buttons to the neck line to make it a bit fancier. Rebekah was very happy with it, she ran over to her brother and spun around for him so he could see how twirly it was! (He's a boy, he didn't get it!)

Here's a picture of the back.  There is a tie on the back, but it's hard to see in the picture.  And below is her spinning!
