Dress A Girl Around The World
The Pillowcase Dress is based on a very simple pattern, and can be easily sewn by both the experienced seamstress and the person who's never sewn. If you are interested in starting a group of your own, here are basic questions and answers about the Dress A Girl Around The World project, as well as how to host an event yourself or host a princess party for younger girls to get involved.
A great project that both young and old, inexperienced and seasoned seamstresses can get involved - with the sole purpose of helping young girls with their self-image. A double like.
If you can't sew or join a group and still would like to give to this organization and mission, here is the link to donate directly to them: Dress A Girl Around The World - Look on the home page and click the 'Make a Donation' button to be taken to the paypal shopping cart and give that way.
