Look at this happy girl! This is of course the beautiful work (and beautiful girl) of Jess from Craftiness is not Optional, the next stop on the Back-to-School Bateaux pattern tour.
Jess and I have a few things in common, starting with the fact that we are both mothers to three little girls. I wish we lived next door to each other. How much fun would that be?! We both also love sewing for our girls, putting together birthday parties for them (we both wish we had more time to spend on that party planning however) and I could go on... Did you see her Ballet Bash? So darling. I think her Bapron may be the smartest and cutest sewing pattern for babies around. She has dozens of cute tutorials on her site, and she is part of the creative powerhouse behind the new Five and Ten Designs ebook. (I will be reviewing it and sewing from it soon--can't wait.)
Jess has sewn a darling version of the Bateau Neck Elastic Waist Dress. I love this floral knit she found, the purple contrasting chest pocket and the white faux tie. You'll want to see more of her cute photos here.
