Lace shorts are hot for summer, and now your favorite girl can get in on the trend. An easy fit and elastic waist make sure she can run and play in style.

Get hippie chic in this cute Tunic Dress. The simple V-neck shape and loose fit are great for hot and sticky days. Pick a tie-dye fabric for extra fun.

The flouncy Ribbon Trimmed Skirt goes with anything! Pick a bright print, and have fun with contrasting ribbon trim for the waistband.

The Eyelet Dress is pretty and comfy. She’ll love the eyelet ruffles at the neckline, elastic waist, scalloped hemline, and spaghetti straps. Instructions for belt are included.

Curl up under your favorite tree with this slipcovered Playtime Cot. It would also brighten up any playroom on a rainy day!

Embroidered embellishments, gathered cap sleeves, a eyelet-trimmed square neckline and loose A-line shape add up to serious Bohemian cuteness in the Cap Sleeve Peasant Dress.

Pair the Ribbon Trimmed Cami with jeans for a tomboy look, or wear it with the Lace Shorts for a girlier vibe.

These casual, folk-inspired patterns make summer dressing easy. Why not make her a whole wardrobe for summer camp? Have fun mixing and matching, and happy sewing!

    LOL. Lighten up, eh? The second part of the title is “8 Patterns for Backyard Fun”. My girls would have loved these outfits, cool, loose, comfy, pretty, casual – in the yard, at the beach, and yes, even camping.

    Are you aware that “Camp Fire Girls” was a major youth organization in the US? It’s now co-ed and renamed simply Camp Fire:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camp_Fire

    This blog post title threw me for a loop b/c I was a former Camp Fire Girl and these don’t look anything like our old uniforms. ;-)

    These clothes are cute, but completely impractical for the kind of outdoor adventures Camp Fire Girls enjoyed.

      yeah, but this is about fashion at all cost. :)

      I would say this and the previous one is more for a garden party or picnic.
