There has been such a great response to the 'Dress a Girl Around the World' appeal over the last few weeks with lots of dresses arriving every day. A huge thanks to everyone who has sent dresses including
Jane from PicpacNaddywak - Country Bunting who sent 3 lovely dresses. Check out her facebook page here where she sells lovely handmade bunting.
The very kind Patricia who sent 6 very pretty dresses including the cutest cat fabric!
The very generous Sarah from Three Yellow Ducks who sent 11 lovely dresses. Check out the Three Yellow Ducks facebook page here where Sarah designs and sells gorgeous handmade girls dresses. She has also helped promote 'Dress a Girl' lots on facebook for which I am really grateful.
This appliqued flower is so pretty
and last but not least the VERY kind Pat who made and sent 30 dresses!! All absolutely gorgeous. Pat may also have made a good contact for me for distributing the dresses.
Wow! Thats another 50 dresses which brings our total to 864. Thank you everyone for your continuing support. I have also made some great contacts recently so I am hoping that these dresses can be sent abroad fairly quickly. I'll let you know as soon as they go!
I also wanted to say a big thank you to Jasmine of Just Jasmine Boutique who as well as making a dress herself, has very kindly offered to make dresses for any non sewers out there who want to get involved. For a donation towards fabric she will give her time free of charge and make up a dress for you. Have a look here for more details. She is also very kindly promoting Dress a Girl on her website. Jasmine also makes gorgeous fabric gifts so have a look at her website or facebook page for more info.
I am holding a small dress workshop for some of my #Pinaddicts team in March who want to learn to make dresses and I've also been asked to go and give a talk to students on a textiles course who are going to make dresses as part of their course. Its very exciting!
