OH MY....this is one of my fave new patterns! the bateau neck top & dress pattern from wee muses is a must have for any wardrobe!
anneliese from the aesthetic nest (and wee muses) is one of my fave online pals. we started chatting when my oldest was a baby and her girlies were still babies too! it's so amazing to be able to still have her as a friend and i was so excited when i saw her newest pattern and got to be a part of the bateau back to school pattern tour!
the first thing i have to say about this pattern is that my VERY picky 6 year old loooooves it. like she's been begging to wear it everyday kind of love it!!! i'm over the moon to see her connect with a piece of clothing like this. i, being the blogger mommy i am, didn't let her wear it until the photos were done, i mean this girl is a big time stainer so i couldn't risk it.. but after a week of bad weather we finally had to take them inside and she woke up soooo excited to finally be able to wear her bateau top.
the wee muses pattern for the bateau top is easy to follow has TONS of options, clean finishes, details, and clear instructions - all my fave things about a good sewing pattern. anneliese walks you through all the steps to make many a beautiful knit garment. bonus is you can now even get the extension for the bateau top to make dress versions too! yay!!!! seriously, you could make a wardrobe of bateau's easily!!! i can't wait to make more.
we used a really fun neon pink solid from girl charlee.com! my oldest just loves this color and i'm all over a fun bright so it was a happy combo to add to her wardrobe that you can see already has tons of color! her favorite chevron skirt from old navy just matched up way to perfectly! i know the top doesn't look too neon in our pics (darn rainy weather) but it really is a true neon pink! love it! if you pop on by girl charlee enter the coupon code "LUVMOMMY" to save 10%!!!
