I'm hooked.....

I am really loving making these little dresses for African girls and have to say I'm rather hooked now.  I have been promised lots more material so I shall be setting to and making all I can in the spare time I have during my working days.  It's such a well worth while cause so I feel my time is being spent wisely.

Therefore I just might be posting a few dresses to keep you posted each day or so.  These are my today's selection.....

This is another one made with the blue sheeting one of my customers gave me trimmed up with the trimmings from a dress I shortened for another of my customers....A great way of using up such pretty materials don't you think?


This is one made from the navy spotted material Penny sent me from France.  Being a darker fabric we thought it would make really pretty dresses for bigger girls and I've trimmed this one up with white bias binding and a pretty embroidery anglaise pocket.....I hope you approve Penny.

Another little dress made using the blue sheeting but this time trimmed up with bias and pockets made using the pretty quilt cover I picked up in a charity shop....a gain gain situation don't you think?









I can see a parcel will be heading your way pretty soon Louise to make room for the next batch here  :-)
If you want to learn more about why I'm making little dresses then please pop over to Louise's blog at Sew Scrumptious.  If you are unable to make the dresses yourself but have fabric you are willing to donate I will keep running up as many little dresses as I have time for.  I'm really loving the challenge.  Just email me for details of where to post to.

You are amazing! Thank you so much!! The dresses are beautiful. I love the one with the frill at the bottom. Such a great idea!! I really appreciate you getting behind this appeal and can't wait to blog about you and your sister and the dresses when they arrive with lots of pictures. Thanks again. Louise xx
