Bateau I wondered what Anneliese thought I would do with such a cute 'pretty' looking pattern. Didn't she know I come from the land of trucks and testicles? Anyway turns out she had this all in mind and lured me in with the challenge of coming up with a boy-ish Bateau. I didn't have to try very hard to make it look 'boyish', the Bateau is actually cleverly drafted to be quite a gender neutral shape, much like the Oliver and S Sailboat top. There are lots of cute add-ons like ruffles and pleats and a dress extension that I didn't think Hudson would appreciate so I just made him a straight up Bateau with the addition of a lizard king, in a size 4. He is 2, but a whopper and currently sharing some of Archie's sized 4-5 clothes, so it made sense.
Leslie Riley Artist transfer paper (print it out, iron it on ) except this was the second attempt because the first lizard was about six months old and didn't take to the fabric at all. So if you're going to use this stuff, print it fresh.
Oh now I remember, it was the blurry photos that did my head in!
