Dress a Girl Around the World

Girls in dressesDress a Girl Around the World is a US charity which asks us to “imagine a world where every little girl owned at least one dress”.

The inspiration to achieve this is by encouraging people to make very simple dresses – from a pillow case or 1m of fabric.

Dresses are then sent to charity representatives who distribute the dresses to girls all over the world.

The following is a link to an easy to follow dress tutorial written by Karen Mills-Thomas, the representative for Virginia, USA. http://dressagirlaroundtheworld-va.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/how-to-make-best-dress-ever-tutorial.html

If you feel inspired to make a dress, details of international representatives can be found on the website. If you are in the UK you can send any dresses to us and we will distribute them in Jheelpur Slum in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
