Dresses – 104  Shorts – 37

Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of our sewing day last Saturday, but we had a very productive morning with close to 10 items completed by the end of the day, and many more in progress. Thanks to all the ladies who came to cut fabric and sew (and a special thanks to Mikayla who was the official “button girl.”)  It was a lot of fun!

If sewing machines scare you, but you’d still like to take part, feel free to donate your gently used sundresses or go shopping for new dresses or shorts for a little Haitian girl or boy.
