About the Event
Join us for a fun filled sewing circle as we sew dresses for little girls in Africa. We will collect the dresses at a later date and ship them to a specific organization who will give them directly to young girls.
You will need the following items to participate:
- Fabric for dress, 3/4 yard or a pillow case
- Coordinating fabric for ties, 1/8' yard
- Single fold 1/2 bias tape, 1 pkg.
- Seam gauge
- Rotary cutter
- Cutting mat
- All-purpose thread
- Straight pins
- Iron and ironing board
- Sewing machine
- Fabric scissors
- Loop turner
Tips: For a professional finish, use bias ape to cover armhole seams as it can easily stretch around the curved areas. Try using a complementary fabric or ribbon for the ties. want a bow on each shoulder? Simply make two ties and feed each one through the front casing and one through the back casing. Tie front and back ties together in a bow on each shoulder.
