So Angie A. has decided to do this big huge ridiculously awesome project. No really, ridiculously awesome. She's making 1000 (that's one thousand) dresses for Little Dresses For Africa.
I'm pretty sure she does this stuff just to make me look bad.
See, here's the thing: Last week I downloaded a free printable pattern for a cute little racerback knit dress. The entire purpose of this pattern's very existence is to provide cute little racerback knit dresses for little girls in need in Africa (and elsewhere).
So of course, I made three. For my own children. Yep. My own children.
I traced out two sizes (having two sizes of Monkeys). They are insanely easy to make. Even I managed to do one in about an hour (and that included raising the armscyes on both patterns I cut out because they were gapping a bit at the sides and "showing our business" as TLo says).
In the meantime, I'm scoping out simpler pillowcase dress methods. This summer the Evil Monkeys are going to try their hand at sewing a dress each and if that goes well, we'll try a dress each for donation.
I hope the little girls in Africa aren't holding their breaths on that one. Because it could be a looooong wait.
