Julia recently delivered all this hard work by the craft group.
“Imagine a World where every little girl owned at least one dress! What if that dress was made by you?”
Dress a Girl Around the World is a charity set up in America with the aim of sending dresses to girls living in poverty across the world.
We thought this was a great idea. Some of us got their sewing machines out and Julia, one of our members, took 10 dresses to Utange, Mombasa where a charity works to provide needy children with an education. We are hoping to get photos of the girls wearing the dresses soon.
We are going to continue to make dresses and will be able to send more out in the spring when another visit to Utange is planned.
You can find the pattern for these very simple dresses here
