Flickr Faves and final BOSS giveaway winners!

Hello everyone! I’ve been enjoying a few screen-free days with my family and sewing up a storm for some upcoming guest posts and magazine features. Last night I had an ABSOLUTE BLAST looking through the Best of Summer outfits you all uploaded to the Flickr pool! Seriously, you guys are unbelievable! 
Just in case any of you reading this need a refresher, we just finished the Best of Summer pattern review series, where bloggers you love share their favorite patterns and tutorials for summer kids clothes. We’ve already given away a bunch of patterns to some of you, and it’s time for one last celebration: the big Flickr Favorites Giveaway!
Choosing winners was no easy task. I love every single item in the Flickr pool, and that’s no exaggeration. Today’s winners were chosen by me, based on my personal favorites from the pool, and I think you’ll love them, too! Click on the link below each picture to see the original post in Flickr and learn more about the maker. Each of these ladies will win one pattern from our Best of Summer pattern designers, who are listed at the bottom of this post. 
Winners, please email me at by July 1st to find out which pattern you won and redeem your prize! 

I died of cute when I first saw these Bubble suspender shorts! Sewn by Golf using the Elegance and Elephants Bubble Shorts pattern.

Another adorable item made with E&E’s bubble shorts pattern. Tasha (iseamstressed) remixed the pattern to sew this perfectly sweet little skirt.

I love these adorable Big Sister/ Little Sister outfits, made for a baby shower by lecsmiscellany. 

A Very Hungry Caterpillar skirt by Darci. So unique, and I love the colors!

The Doli Tank pattern is very popular this season (for good reason!) and I adore this flowery version by Monica.

Look at this fun outfit three ways! I love the versatility. Aurelia skirt and tunic, sewn by Linzigenevieve.

Everything about this photo shouts summer fun!I love this sweetie in an her Fauna Edelweiss dress, sewn by Skirt As Top. 
Now, for my BOY FAVES:
Aack, these baby swim trunks by April! My heart!
Fun Prefontaine shorts by Sarah! Love that contrasting binding. 

Cute checked shorts by Handmade Frenzy! 
Love these rash guards by Rebecca! Perfect sewing project for summer. 

Great work, everyone! Summer’s not over, so keep sewing those awesome summer outfits.
