Aesthetic Nest has just released a new pattern...the Bateau Neck Top. (available in her etsy shop here) It is a 'boat' neck shirt that is extremely easy and quick to sew, and has several options including a front pleat, pocket, back buttons and ruffle neck.
I had promised Elliott we would play around with some fabric paint on one of his shirts and this was the one. We were hoping it would turn out really cute (like this one I painted for Henry) but sadly, the results were mixed. We used a glow paint to write an 'e' on the shirt pocket. The paint looks weird during the day since it's a yellow-ish color. But in the dark it looks great! I think I'd like to try this paint again on a highly patterned fabric so it blends into the print and then pops out at night.
You can go here to see more pictures of the bateau neck options including the ruffle neck. I love that version and hopefully will get to make one this fall. You can also enter the giveaway to win one of these beautiful patterns!
