How to make a Fabric Bow

If I had to choose a favorite neckline it would have to be the boatneck.  It’s just so feminine and classic, and looks good on almost anyone.

I’ve sewn a boatneck for myself, for Clara, for the dolls, and this weekend I sewed two for Lucy!
Specifically, I tried out the new pdf pattern by Wee Muses (from Aesthetic Nest) called:  The Bateau Neck Top!  And today I’m joining her pattern tour and sharing my creations.


Okay.  I LOVE this pattern.  Anneliese did such a wonderful job with it.  It’s easy to follow, easy to sew, easy to add your own twists.  It’s simplicity is what makes it brilliant.  It’s just—-lovely and cute.
And it works for many seasons.

Whether you’re headed back to school or still hanging on to summer, there’s a bateau waiting for you to sew.


Seriously.
This is one of those “under-an-hour” projects.  You gotta try it.
And if you’ve never sewn with knits, this is a great place to start.  (Read more about Sewing with Knits HERE.)

First I made a basic top.  It’s hard to tell in the photos but the fabric is a soft interlock knit (from Joanns) sprinkled with silver specks.   My instinct was to leave it plain, since sparkles are an accessory in themselves.

But it really needed a little something more—maybe a bite of polka dots?  Lucy approved.  How many treasures will fit in 2 x 2 inches?

This basic top came together very quickly, since the neckline is simply ironed under and sewn!  Even faster than the casing I used on Clara’s.  And the sleeveless version beats them all.  Super quick.

The tank top was Lucy’s idea.  We tried on the green shirt before the sleeves were sewn-on and she asked, ooooh, is this a tank top??  That’s really cute.
You’re right, we should make it a tank.
And…we should probably add a bow.  A big oversized shoulder bow.

“Mom! I look just like Lexi!”
Yes, yes.  I can’t get away from the bow!

And don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about making doll patterns.  I’ve just put it on the back burner since so many of you showed interest in the First Day Dress….which is currently in the works.

The sleeveless version is not part of the Bateau Neck pattern instructions but it’s pretty self-explanatory….you just iron the armholes under and sew them in place like you do at the neckline.  My recommendation is to iron and sew them in place before sewing the side seams.  This makes it easier all around.

Then add a big floppy accessory and you’re set.

If you’ve never made a bow I’ve got a simple tutorial HERE.

For this version I used knit fabric.  And the key to the shoulder bow is placement on the shirt.  Don’t sew it right ON to the shoulder, but handsew it slightly below the shoulder, so it drapes more over the front of the shirt than the back.

And just like that we’ve got more school clothes.  Yay!  I love finding patterns and clothes that are a bit more grown-up but still appropriate and playful for kids—-so that they still look like kids.

  147. 154) Nancy Michel

    I have left sewing for the past few years and mainly crocheted and knitted, but as a grandma of 4 and #5 at the end of this month, I need to get back into sewing and this pattern would be GREAT for both the girls and the boys!! Your tutorials are wonderful and step by step. I needed this “budge” to get back into sewing, knowing it doesn’t have to be hard or complicated!! Thank you.

  148. Reason #6651 why I love you: the bateau is my fave neckline, too!! Always so flattering, and shows off the collarbone–both tasteful and classy. Am so getting this pattern–can’t believe how hard it is to find decent clothing for a second-grader. It’s shameful, really, how few things in stores are acceptable, and how few patterns are in their size that don’t look to young but aren’t too old. This will totally fill a gap!

  149. 156) Melissa

    LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!

  150. 157) Shannon S

    What an awesome basic pattern to have!

  151. I love bateau necklines! They really are beautiful! Can’t wait to make outfits with them for my little girl.

    Thanks for the chance!!! The one with the bow is soooo cute. I have to try it!!!!

  153. 160) lux

    me please!!
    have been trying to figure this out for some time. meaning, i dream about making it once the kids go to bed…and i’m watching tv.
    but if i have this…i’ll have inspiration!

  154. 161) Leslie

I have a 7 yr old who just started second grade.. and on the first day of school we had a major meltdown when a bunch of her clothes no were no longer appropriate for school. I can’t wait to try this with a some old t-shirts and sweat shirts to turn them into new clothes for her. :)

  717. 755) Elizabeth Batten

    I love your easy way of sewing. I can do a little bit of sewing, but have not done any in a long time. Using the dining room table, you always have to be moving the sewing machine and fabric for each meal, and that becomes a nuisance.

    Love it!! Pick me! Pick me! I adore that bow!!

  719. 757) Beth
