I’m excited to report that I’ve officially made 13 pillowcase dresses for Dress a Girl Around the World.  I dropped them off a few weeks ago and also included a pair of plaid shorts that I wore as a little girl that my grandmother made for me in with the pile of dresses.  It made my heart sing to think of her handiwork being worn by a child in desperate need of shorts. 

I wanted to share some pictures and update you on where these dresses are going.  A local man is going to Haiti this summer with 25 dresses, undies and dolls and 10 shorts for the school he has visited several times. And 229 dresses, 43 shorts, 103 undies and 85 dolls are going with a local publishing company to Guatemala and  Haiti in early summer. I’m not sure which group my dresses are going with, but I promise to share any pictures I receive of the girls wearing the dresses I made.

If you want to make some too, they have the pattern available for download here. And you can send the finished dresses here.
