giveaway week on KCW!

wee muses + giveaway

Welcome to day 4 of giveaway week! Today’s featured guest is a newer pattern designer, but an old favorite in the blog world: Anneliese! Anneliese writes the popular blog, Aesthetic Nest and has recently started designing and selling her own patterns under the name Wee Muses. I’ll let Anneliese tell you a bit about it:

Wee Muses Sewing Patterns capture the inspiration and magic of childhood in classic designs. The digital sewing patterns offered by Wee Muses are inspired by my own three girls. I love to sew classic clothing for them, as I document on my blog, and hope my patterns will help others create the looks they love too. All my designs include multiple options so that the garments sewn from them can be customized to suit the child as well as the sewist. The patterns are instant PDF downloads with full color photo tutorials and computer graded and drafted pattern pieces, which have been fully tested on multiple continents.

My favorite pattern, and I might even say the internet’s favorite too, is the Bateau Neck Top. It is a basic boat neck shirt with options for a ruffle around the neck, pockets, and buttons up the back. Dana from Dana Made it even made it into a tank top! It seems everyone likes this top in stripes and can you blame them? Who wouldn’t want to look like an adorable French sailor or an adorable Audrey Hepburn?

In addition to the Bateau Neck Top pattern, Anneliese also sells the Bateau Neck Dress pattern extension. In this add-on pattern, you get cap sleeve and 3/4 length sleeve options, a-line dress and elastic waist options, and many more! I love a pattern that works equally well for summer and winter, big kids and little kids, tops and dresses. Armed with these two patterns, you could sew a whole Bateau wardrobe!
