Little Dresses for Africa Event Wisconsin 1/23/11 Photos

Just In!!!!
Photos from the Wisconsin Little Dresses Event and story by Toni
"The Wisconsin sewing party for Little Dresses" went well with the 5 people in attendance all being experienced sewers. We cranked out quite a few dresses in one day, despite the sub zero temperatures, and the Packer playoff game! Most of the dresses are made from pillowcases. We eliminated the elastic portion of the dress as the ribbon can rouche as well as the elastic, and with the cost of trim, we felt that this will work just as well. I brought the finished dresses into the Tai Chi class, and got some fabric donation for more dresses. The plan is to host another party at the Wellness Spa in March after the Goddess weekend weekend retreat...we hope to get more sewers involved. Everyohne had a good time and thanked Devon for giving us this great project to work on!"

Thanks Ladies!
