Homemade Dress Drive for Haiti

By Kathybarbro @KathyBarbro
Homemade Dress Drive for HaitiEarlier this month, while Project HOPE Art was Nadine’s orphanage in Port-Au-Prince, it became abundantly clear just how few clothes many of her girls have. The things they do own are very well worn at best, and nearly falling apart at worst. HOPE Art would like to change this, with a personal touch, by starting a Homemade Dress Drive. We are inviting all seamstresses to take a little of their time and to make one or more simple sundresses (our goal is 30), which would be hand delivered to the orphanage by the end of the year. This process is being aided by an online pattern company “oliver + s”, who has kindly agreed to let us use their free pattern, which you can download HERE. This well designed pattern was used to create this little pink number, which is officially “Dress #1”. Now just 29 more to go… Please email me should you have any questions.
