Dress a Girl Around the World

About Me

I have a degree in engineering and worked on the Space Shuttle. Now I'm retired and caring for my dad with Alzheimer's, my two sons with autism and my wonderful husband, who also takes care of me.

I have experience sewing period costume and, many years ago, baby clothes. A couple of friends got me started on sewing for the Dress A Girl project. Making pretty little dresses is fun, since I only have sons and no grandchildren, and my sister's grands are both boys. As an inventor, I like to think up new ways to do things, even when it comes to sewing.

Based on my Internet research on Uganda, I believe that it is probably best to make dresses for older girls that not only cover the knees but the shoulders, as well.

I think the longer you make them will be good! Information from missionaries with Transformed International based in Kenya says that older girls do not show their knees. It is considered inappropriate. I don't know if that is also the case in Uganda.
