material girl~

"...Living in a material world And I am a material girl You know that we are living in a material world And I am a material girl... " Madonna... Japanese fabric...that is the material...again... Seems that a certain birthday girl wanted something hand made for her birthday... And she chose this book ... And some fabric I had on hand...a delicious Japanese cotton, (sadly, no longer available...) Had to have pockets... and tied...at the top...for a summery look. cut...sew...done... and I thought I'd add this fun sundress... tutorial found here ... because when you are 6... you like to have fun, ride a bike, get girly... and play dress-up...
