Summer Sewing

It is that time of the year...I get the urge to do some summer sewing.
I make a lot of Lily's clothing, and just a few things for the boys.

So, I have been perusing through catalogs for ideas.
It is one of my favorite past times to stir up creativity:).

Do you know about Olive Juice ?
My sister brought over a catalog a couple of years ago and I have since admired their darling vintage line of clothing for children.

I usually am just a catalog browser.
They have wonderful ideas.

Just look at this..


Makes me wish I had a tiny one:).

These are precious.



You should pay them a visit if you like simple vintage style. 

I also found some darling patterns for free.


Multiple fabric version


Oliver and S {one of my favorites} has this ruffled halter dress pattern for free here.
Isn't it the sweetest?





And this dress..oh, I have to make it.





The Popover Dress makes my heart go pitter- patter.





The Lazy Days Skirt ...soooo perfect.







I have this pattern and just love it. 
You can purchase it here.


I am planning on making the little shirt with some beautiful Shabby Chic sheets I found at a yard sale.
They are a wonderful cotton and have a petite pink rose pattern. 
We love pink:).





These shorts are to die for.


Can you tell I am just slightly smitten with Burda patterns?

This swing top is too easy to make.







I'm having a hard time choosing which project to start on first. Hmmm...
