HERE) creates charming children's clothing and sewing patterns. The clothing has a vintage appeal with a modern twist that is just delightful. I have purchased several of her patterns and am eagerly awaiting the publication of her first book: Sew Classic Clothes for Girls. The book contains a generous set of patterns for 20 girls’ dresses, outfits and accessories. The book will be available in October of this year and can be pre-ordered from The Cottage Mama. (I have no affiliation with Lindsay or the book. I just love her style!) While perusing her website this summer I came across her tutorial section that is chock full of great things to make and several free patterns. The pattern for the little Summer Picnic Dress can be found HERE in sizes 12 months to 4 years.

"Each day brings with it the miracle of a new beginning. Many of the moments ahead will be marvelously disguised as ordinary days, but each one of us has the chance to make something extraordinary out of them."
Enjoy this wonderful new day. Look for the extraordinary in the little ordinary things you do today. Blessings to all who read this!
