A while ago I came across a tweet by Louise from Sew Scrumptious about “Dress a girl around the world”. She is the UK coordinator for this charity which aims to provide little girls in need with proper dresses. Having a dress is not only a matter of looks, it is also a way to show these girls are cared for: this is comforting for them and discouraging for possible predators.
I immediately loved this idea and picked a pretty flowery blue cotton to make my first dress. On top of being for a good cause, this allowed me to practice my top stitching: I wanted the dress to be perfect!
I will surely make some more because they are quite addictive to make. What about you join in? All information (including links to patterns) is available on Sew Scrumptious dedicated page.
