In brief: Over a VSD
The aorta is normally attached to the left ventricle and carries oxygenated blood to the body.
In tetralogy of fallot, the aorta arises over a ventricular septal defect (vsd, a hole between the left and right ventricles of the heart). This means that unoxygenated blood from the right ventricle also flows into the aorta.
