I'm back from a wonderful week spent with family in Saskatchewan.
When I got home I had some sewing to do.
After testing the Wee Muses bateau neck top pattern, (you can see those here) I said that the next time I made it I would add some length and make it a dress. Well, Anneliese came out with a pattern extension and asked if I would want to test it. Of course I said yes!
I made the classic bateau A-line dress for my 2-year-old daughter using
fabric I had left over from the bateau neck tops.
I made the elastic waist dress for my other two daughters using some jersey interlock I picked up at Joann.
I absolutely love this version of the dress. So comfy and cute.
Making an A-line dress by adding to the bateau neck top pattern would be pretty simple to do without a pattern (although Anneliese adds details I wouldn't have thought of) but this elastic waist version definitely makes the pattern worth buying. It's just perfect!
Thank you Anneliese for letting me test this pattern!
