Dress a Girl Around the World

Ruby made this dress as an example of one of the patterns from the webite.
Our church is making dresses for "Dress a Girl Around the World".  You can check out there website here:
http://www.dressagirlaroundtheworld.com/

They supply dresses for little girls around the world.  These are the only dresses some of these girls will ever own.  They are taking donations of cotton dresses, no pillowcase dresses.  There are several patterns at the website above.  They ask for cotton because their dresses are usually washed at the river and need to be able to hold up against vigorous washing.  Please make sure the fabric is not sheer either.

Some ladies at our church is meeting on October 28, to make dresses.  My church is Bethany Baptist Church in Ava, MO and I would like to invite anyone who lives close to come and help us make cotton dresses for these little girls.  We'll meet from 10-2, bring a sack lunch for lunch time.

You can check out the Facebook page of the Missouri representative here:

She also takes cash donations to cover the shipping of the dresses to Africa.

If you would like to donate a dress, you are welcome to send them to me, just message me and I will give you my address.  If you are not sure if you are a no-reply blogger, please give me your email address, because I cannot reply otherwise.
One of the ladies at my church made all of these dresses from scraps.  She did a super job!

You can make t-shirt dresses, slip dresses, dresses from patterns, or use one of the patterns on the website.  The little girls will appreciate anything you can donate!

Thank you!
Missy
