Summer is coming

And so is Maria's summer wardrobe.

I loosely followed Dana's dress tutorial here. As you know, she is another one of my faves!! She has a new pattern in her shop, that will make a great addition to any little girl's closet.I have challenged myself to not only make her summer wardrobe, but to use only recycled materials. You should see the looks I have been getting at the counter of my local thrift stores. I feel the need to explain to the clerk why I am purchasing two extra small tank tops and a men 3x Hawaiian shirt. Maybe some things should be left unsaid.

So go, and give your local thrift store clerk something to talk about.
Happy Thrifting!!
