Dress a girl around the world

LBG studio

I saw this sew·a·long on a blog I was visiting recently, which they are challenging sewers (ones who sew, not where our waste goes) to take some time to make a dress for an organization called Hope 4 Women’s International.  They are sponsoring a campaign to provide every girl in the world a dress.  Well since I have little opportunities to make things for little girls I was excited to take on this challenge.  LBG Studio  provided a downloadable pdf pattern that I promptly printed out and prepped while putting together Thomas puzzles.
I began looking around at the fabric I had at home, since this was during nap time, and thought I had a problem.  You see, when a majority of your projects are for boys, you have a lot of blue and greens. 
guest blogger on LBG Studios, helped me solve my problem.  Her flower-shaped tutorial, added the girly touch to my some-what boy colored dress!

And so, just after a few hours I was able to produce this pretty cute pillowcase dress (toot-toot) that hopefully will make it’s way to some sweet girl that needs it a little more than my boys!

My models were less than cooperative when trying to do a photoshoot.  I finally bribed the older one, (turns out that it fit him better anyways) and promised him I would not show his face and humiliate him publicly!

Want to make one too?  Click on the picture on the top of the page to find out all the details.
