Spring-Summer Collection for My Daughter

I have been doing some summer sewing for my daughter. It has been a while since I have made her anything. Plus, she has loved and worn a ton the few things I have made her. The picture above contains most of the pieces I have made for her, but there a few that I made after the photo was taken.
The idea behind the undertaking was to develop a "collection" of sorts that offers the possibility to mix and match the individual pieces. When planning, Ihad to take in consideration the summer clothes she already has (mostly bottoms). I could have, hypothetically, made her the tank tops and tees she needed, but I went to the The Children’s Place and Old Navy instead. I’d rather use the time for something less generic.
Most of the designs are Burda WOF patterns; some are drafted by me. The styles and colors reflect what I like in children's clothing, i.e. clothes that resemble those of grown-ups, yet appropriate for the little ones. That is why there are not many (any!) frills and pink hues. I did not make more pants because my daughter prefers dresses and skirts to pants, so I had to respect that as well.

I am going to post individual pictures and brief reviews (if a commercial pattern was used) shortly.

That's a lovely and well thought out wardrobe!

(The brown lace-up open-toe open-heel ankle boots are by Asos ( I buy a lot of shoes from them, including the Ash sandal boots and the silver cage sandals, which I got on sale. The clogs are from Zara. Thanks for your comments!)

lovely collection,clean&chic, my daughter is still living in her princess dreams so pink and red are on top for the moment. I'm sewing that for her because when I was like her I wished I could have red princess gowns and pink swirling skirts. I like the way you've styled all of them in the picture.

I love the simpleness and style of what you have put together.
