Spring rainstorms won’t get in your way in cute rain gear and casual outfits for kids. Dress for a beach play date or trip to the park in this fun collection from the March 2014 issue of Burda Style magazine.

Make these Rain Pants in coated cotton for playing outside in the rain. They’re fitted with an elastic waistband, cuffs, and pockets. You could also try them in a cute print for a simple school outfit!

This romper has a little vintage kick with a harlequin print, back pockets, and a placket neckline. It’s a sweet playsuit for beach adventures or picnics.

A stretchy waistband and pockets make these Shorts perfect for summer fun. They go with absolutely everything, so make them in lots of fun colors and prints!

Complete your rainy day ensemble with this fisherman style Rain Hat. It has a wide brim to keep her hair and face dry.

Protect your bicycle seat with a water resistant cover. It also adds some extra flair to your ride.

A classic yellow Rain Cape means play never has to end, rain or shine! A hood and drawstring waist keep her warm and dry.

A little Raglan Tee is cute and casual. This one is embellished with fabric paint raindrops on sweatshirt fabric.

Stretchy leggings in a fun printed fabric are essential for a little girl’s closet! You can make several pairs to coordinate all her outfits and she can run and play in style.

A Sleeveless Hooded Sweatshirt has a little tomboy style with a big kangaroo pocket. Toughen up little sundresses or layer it over a tee shirt and skinny jeans.

A striped fabric calls attention to the diagonal panel in this raglan tee. It’s a comfy, everyday tee with just a little pop of interest at the sleeve.

A classic yellow Rain Cape is a charming way to keep warm and dry in summer showers. Make this design pop with a contrast print lining and some cute rubber wellies.

Spend an afternoon jumping puddles or feeding the ducks in these new designs. Adventurous little girls will love them.

Happy sewing!

    Have you done it yet again? Here’s the cover caption for this collection on the preceding page linking to this one:

    Dockside: 11 Patterns for the Lakehouse Rethink skirt suits and floral dresses in this watercolor-inspired collection.

    Skirt suits? Floral dresses, where, please? As in ‘rethink skirt suits and floral dresses into little kids’ rainwear?’

    Spotting the ‘sewing blow’ typo yesterday, I said Burda needed a copyeditor fast. Now it’s getting to be a comic note that we can count on, ‘Burda Bloopers.’

    (Friday. I see you’ve fixed it. XX)
