Dress a Girl Around the World

The organization called Dress a Girl Around the World asks you to imagine a world where every little girl has at least one dress. They have already given over 12,000 dresses in 37 countries! Can you imagine? I found out about this when Suzanne signed up to follow this blog and I clicked on her thumbnail over there in the sidebar! See her blog called Sew Delightful to learn more about this exciting project.

Suzanne is packing a box of 120 dresses to send, including these dresses above that were made using fabrics donated by SisBoom. (SisBoom fabric is seriously gorgeous!) Many dresses are made from pillowcases so the hems are already done. What a sweet idea!

Ok, so this is the greatest thing I've seen. I'd like to do something .... Unfortunately, I am leaving to see my son for a 12 day vacation, come back, my other son comes home for a two week spring break and then I have two baby quilts to make, and my best friend is coming home to visit from Australia ... and that's April ... so, that's about June when I can commit to something else! Wish I could do something now, this is such a worthy cause. Can I get in on something this summer? I have some cute antique, embroidered pillow cases ... I could send them somewhere? I have fabric, let me know ... I think my email is attached somewhere!

I think it is a wonderful thing and bookmarked the site. I want to make clothes again, so when I get better at it, I can make some.

Someone mentioned this in our guild last year and we made 90 dresses. "WoolenSails" it's easy and they're so cute! Information is on

Thanks for sharing about our project!! These dresses are simple to make and take less than an hour each. You just need to be able to sew a straight stitch. That is one of the wonderful things about this project!! anyone with questions can email me at and more info is at sewdightful.blogspot,com
