Dress a Girl Around the World

Every little girl deserves a pretty dress, right?


While browsing Prudent Baby (one of my favorites) I came across this blog, Little Big Girl Studio. All next week she is hosting a sew along to benefit the Dress a Girl Around the World campaign. Each day she will have different guest bloggers with fun ideas on how to dress up a simple Pillowcase Dress to then send in to be given to a little girl in need. What a great charity!! Not that I need an incentive to make a dress, but for every dress you upload to their Flickr pool, you will get entered to win a prize! Woo hoo!

I've never made a Pillowcase Dress, but now is as good a time to learn as any, right? They seem simple enough. You can use an actual pillowcase or any cute girly fabric you have. I know I have some fabric just waiting for a little girl in need to wear it and feel pretty. There are patterns everywhere for a Pillowcase Dress, but to make it easy, here are two tutorials for you. Here and here. I believe there will be more dress patterns to choose from next week during the Sew Along, as well as more information on where to send your dress when you are finished.

What a great way to use the talents that God has given us!

Won't you join me in making some sweet dresses?


  1. I was debating hosting a sewing party to make a bunch of these. Even if people weren't sew-ey, they could come iron and pin, right?! Think I could find enough takers to make a party out of it?

  2. even easier - you can take pre-packed bags ready to complete a dress if you are having lots of inexperienced ladies come. our church has a bin full of them so we take them as we like. of course, you can always add to those or embellish the simple dresses.

  3. thanks so much for sharing this on your blog. glad to have you joining in :)
