Dress A Girl Around The World

The April project over at Hopeful Threads is to sew dresses for the Dress A Girl Around The World organisation. I haven’t made a dress in a while and it’s been bugging me, so this was a perfect project!

A while ago a lovely relative of mine who has given up sewing gave me an enormous packing box full of fabric. Another reason to do this project is that I need to do some serious stash busting! I pulled out a bright and colourful floral tropical type print and used the gorgeous infant peasant dress pattern and tutorial from Sew Much Ado to make two of these little dresses –

There is still plenty of time left in April to make a dress for this project – the aim is to get to 100 dresses and I’m sure Hopeful Threads will easily make this target! If you have a spare hour and a pillowcase or maybe you need to do some stash busting too, make sure you pop over to Hopeful Threads and check out the details of the April project. Kristy has also put together this great list of free dress tutorials, which is a handy resource to pin or bookmark!
If you do make one, I’d love to see it! Post a link in my comments or on my Facebook page!

  1. Oh I love this one.. I'm not such a fan of the pillow case dress so I'm working on some cute alternative and this is adorable!! I definitely need to clean out my stash so may just whip one of these up over the weekend!

  2. I love the peasant dress!! The colours are so bright and pretty, this will be a well-loved dress by some happy, little girl. 🙂 I found your blog through Threading My Way, I'm your newest follower!
