500 Dresses Update 2

1 Comment

This is just a quick update on the dress project.

  • Dress Total is 20. Shorts total is 12. (These are just the ones I know of.)
  • For those of you who are scared of sewing machines but like to shop, Mission to Haiti will accept new dresses and shorts, preferrably from size 3 – 12. You are also welcome to donate used sundresses. (Think nice used stuff. Dresses you would take to a consignment shop, not worn-out garage sale rejects.)
  • Deadline is April 30.
  • Here is a link to directions for a simple dress that is used by a group who makes dresses for Africa.

Thank you so much to everyone who has helped out in some way. The list of donations and seamstresses is growing! More than 20 people have/are taking part in some way so far!

  1. Kim, I will buy several dresses/shorts for the Haiti mission. I will have them to you by April 30. We will be back in Iowa by middle of April. I can definitely help this way since I can’t sew.
