Little Dresses for Africa

LDfA is another charity organization creating dresses for little girls in Africa who need them. This nonprofit organization supplies patterns for simple dresses made from new or gently used pillowcases. Little Dresses for Africa has partnered with Nancy's Notions (Nancy Zieman), and from you can find the Little Dresses for Africa sewing pattern.

While they primarily focus on little girls, they also work on making shorts for little boys. From Nancy Zieman's blog,, you can find out more about the boys shorts project, and from Nancy's Notions website, you can find the pattern for Britches for Boys - shorts made of an adult sized t-shirt.
