It's that time of year! And we're pretty excited. The summer went by too fast, as usual, but that's not going to stop me from enjoying the back-to-school season. I love the prep and the anticipation of a new classroom, a new teacher, new friends, new box of crayons. It's all good.
Oh, and new school clothes! How could I forget that? It may be more fun for me than my girls, but that's OK. I've been hunting down some bargains but I've also been sewing and this striped Bateau Neck Dress is my idea of the perfect first-day-of-school dress.
Easy to put on, comfortable, cheery stripes. And a school bus applique. What more could a girl want? (Well, maybe perfectly matched stripes on the side seams but I've had to let that go....) I designed this school bus applique for the Bernina USA blog, We All Sew. They have the free applique template and my step-by-step tutorial on their blog.
I am hoping some of you have a little boy or girl with an equal love of school buses. This would be great on a plain purchased t-shirt or any basic shirt or dress pattern. Enjoy the back-to-school rush!
