I have a couple of photos to share from South Africa too. These dresses were taken by Kat from Leeds University to the townships around Durban. Gorgeous photos! Thanks Kat.

We are running free workshops all day showing people how to make dresses and have a target of 50 dresses for the day! You can find out much more here.

13 dresses arrived from Amy and her year 10 pupils at George Stephenson High School In Newcastle. Amy very kindly sent me some fantastic photos of the class making their dresses as part of their GCSE Textiles course which they are happy for me to share. I LOVED seeing all the photos!
Even better the students very kindly wrote to me telling me about themselves and what they had enjoyed about making the dresses. They were so lovely to read. Thank you everyone. Your dresses are absolutely gorgeous and I really appreciate all your hard work. Keep up the sewing!!
