19 dresses

Today has been a super amazing day not only because of the weather because of the fact that Jenny and Becksie held another dress a girl event and made a total of 19 dresses!dress 3

We were lucky as the church hall was cool and a very lovely place to be, we even had a spot of classical music on in the background.

We had a tasty lunch made by Granny Pugh – lots of yummy sarnies! And even Ian and Grandpa joined forces to make a dress! Very impressive!dress 1

A huge thank you to all the sewers who attended it was a fabulous day and 19 girls around the world are going to be delighted!

Now this really special project really is a way you can change the world and putting on an event is a huge amount of fun. Of course to put on an event you need fabric, bias binding, elastic and thread! We had some extremely kind donations firstly from a lovely lady called Hannah and Kate from Marshmellow Woodstock and a huge fabric donation from Abakhan fabrics. Amazing, so kind and we are hugely grateful!dress 5
