Dress a girl around the worldMarch 11, 2011
I stumbled across this great cause last week and decided I could make time among my continuous stream of sewing projects for some charity. Dress a girl around the world is a campaign run by Hope 4 Women International. They have delivered 18, 714 dresses so far to needy girls in 36 countries. All the details and patterns for making the dresses are on the dress a girl website. I also found a very worthwhile blog -Kristy posts an assortment of charities that people can sew for.
My pillowcase dress is not strictly a pillowcase dress as I had no cute pillowcases to convert. I used some leftover fabric from a pair of pj's I made my sister and made my own bias binding from the same fabric as the bottom trim. It's a very simple design - one for beginners.
