Dress A Girl Around the World with Nancy DeLizza

It’s called Dress A Girl Around the World, and it’s a simple idea with big impact. Women from all over the country are sewing together dresses from pillowcases, discarded sheet sets, curtains, and numerous miscellaneous materials. These dresses are then distributed to girls in need all around the world.

All of the patterns are provided for free for anyone who wants to help. Whether you’re new to sewing or a pro, it’s a fun project that costs little to nothing and will make a huge impact in a little girl’s life.

My aunt, Nancy DeLizza, recently became involved in the project. Here she shows us how quick and easy it is to make a dress out of a piece of scrap of fabric. (FYI: she’s an experienced seamstress and finished an entire dress in about 15 minutes!)

Here’s the finished product. Nancy made about two dozen dresses so far!
