I chanced upon Sew and Sow Farm blog by Jan last week and read that she is embarking on ‘Dresses for Africa’ project. What a worthy cause. I know immediately that I would like to participate. I followed Jan’s tutorial and managed to sew a cute little dress.
Then I saw Lillian’s pattern. Lillian is an inspiration as she has sewn more than a 1000 dresses. I was a little hesitant to sew with this pattern at first as I do not have much experience sewing garments and this pattern is more involved than the one shown in Jan’s tutorial. Anyway I decided to go ahead and used Lillian’s pattern. To my surprise it was not as difficult as I thought.
I am very pleased with how the little dress turn out. Now I have 2 dresses all ready to send to Jan.
To show my support for May is for Makers, I have purchased the Spinning pattern from Beth at Cooking Up Quilts. she has just released that pattern.
I am linking up with Sew Simple Saturday at Sew and Sow Farm. Hope you will join me to bring cheer to the girls in Africa.
