Dresses for africa

We went to our church today to sew dresses for girls in Africa. They are made from pillow cases and are easy to make, the open end of the pillow case makes the bottom of the dress. To make it the closed end is cut off, and the corners are trimmed to make armholes, the top is folded, hemmed, and elastic inserted. Then bias is applied to the armholes to make straps. Add a pocket and it’s done. The lady who started this drive has a website littledressesforafrica.org. Shown below is the dresses we made today, with our daughter wearing them.
