Dresses for Haiti

Last week Oliver + S provided an update on the Project HOPE Art dress drive (the project I was inspired by last November):
In recent months we’ve given a few updates on progress being made by Project HOPE Art and their handmade dress drive. As of our most recent update last October, the group had received 143 Popover Sundresses to deliver to orphanages in Haiti. This was almost five times the original goal of 30!
Well, your generosity didn’t stop there and then. Kathy Barbro tells us today that Project HOPE Art has now received almost 400 dresses, with more continuing to arrive!
Project HOPE Art has delivered the first 300 dresses to Haiti, along with many other items of clothing and footwear, and Kathy has posted a wonderful album of photos from the trip on Facebook

This update was a great reminder of an intention I set to make at least one dress for the project. I'm thrilled they're still accepting donations. I have 3 metres of a pretty blue-bird cotton just waiting to be used.

If you'd like to make a dress too, let me know. Once we're done we can mail them together.
