On Wednesday 11th June I am running my fifth Dress a Girl Around the World event. I love these charity sewing sessions. You will learn to make a very simple pillow case dress (so called because all you need is a pillow case worth of fabric), or a simple pair of shorts. You can decorate these to your heart’s content. When they are all done they get sent off to the charity’s UK head quarters (Sewscrumptious ) where they will be distributed all over the developing world. In all I believe about 20000 dresses have been given to girls who have likely never had their own new dress before. Can you imagine how special you would feel if you knew someone had made this specially for you? With love?

Here’s some photos of the last event I ran at the local WI.
