I have been sewing in some form for over 50 years and have a need to continue. Dress a Girl Around the world caught my eye after reading about it in the local newspaper. I thought I can do that and got contacts through a friend. My first goal is to make 100 dresses in four sizes, 1/2 4, 8 and 14, 25 of each. I have the size 4 done and my 3 year old grandaughter thinks they are hers. I have to hide them for a while so I can get them to my contact without her noticing.
I have learned that there is a lot of good generous people willing to help with the cause. After talking to some of them, I received so many bags of fabric, notions and gift cards, I'll be able to sew for a long time. Many of them have had the fabric and didn't want to let it go. I can understand the attachment they have for their crafts, I am the same way, but they decided it was going to a good cause. It was much appreciated. As I sew the dresses I post pics of them on Face Book so they know I am using the fabric for the dresses.
I am having so much fun creating the many colored dresses.
