The Good Deeds Dress

from Elysium
(9) Name: 'Sewing : The Good Deeds Dress
The Good Deeds Dress

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing knowledge is helpfull. The pattern includes detailed instructions as well as step by step pictures.

Pattern Description:

The Good Deeds Dress was born out my dear friend Becca's frustration with what is known as a pillowcase dress. We were sewing up a few dresses for Dress a Girl Around the World and while simple and sweet the pillowcase style was just not what she was looking for. She told me what she wanted, an easy to sew and easy to wear dress that looked cute on its own but would be easy to embellish. A few days later The Good Deeds Dress was born. In the spirit of which it was created it was decided to release it as a free pattern in hopes that with each download someone out there may take the time to sew up a dress for charity. Whether donating dresses to an official organization or just using a small bit of your time and fabric to make something pretty for the little girl down the road you are helping to make a difference in someones life! Even if it is as simple as putting a smile on a that little girls face, the warmth that will grow in your heart is worth every stitch! <3 I'm also hopeful that some of you may take the time to post a picture of your creations using this or any of my patterns over on my Facebook page. I'm always thrilled to see what everyone is making! Happy sewing everyone!!
