Carefree Clothes for Girls

There's a new book in the shop today, and it's one of those books that makes me wish I had an assistant (or two) or, better yet, that each day was about twice as long as it actually is (with the second 24 hours intended only for crafting—kids asleep, dishes done, grocery closed, etc.).

But alas, I'm stuck with the day the way it is and of course, no home-management assistants. So I'll have to choose only one project (for now anyway). Since we are on the brink of summer it'll probably be the sundress (check out Molly's on the Purl Bee, so lovely), but considering the state of things over here these days, it might have to be a couple kerchiefs (sorry, I couldn't find a picture - I suppose that means I'll have to make at least one!).  

Until I can find the time to actually make something from this lovely book, check out these projects from Carefee Clothes that I found around and about the web: Soulemama, Purl Bee, and Katie Did.

And, here's a little secret: some of the patterns can be downloaded here for free.

Happy Monday, and of course, happy sewing!

Of course, I LOVE your patterns! I can't wait to see the new ones!
My mom is working on a Baby's Yoke Jacket for my youngest and it's gorgeous. :)
