What an awesome couple of months! There was an article in the local paper about SoDag in January,
and from that it seems as if SoDag has exploded in our area! There are more sewers and more donations coming in for giving a girl a dress of their own.
While searching the net I came across a peasant pattern that I incorporated to use with the pillowcase dress to send to young girls in the Appalachians. We recieved several short sleeved t-shirt dresses from a local organization that we matched up sweaters and sweatshirts for the other girls ( we were short 5 sweaters), and sent several skirt sets ( a skirt made out of a t-shirt and a long sleeve t-shirt to match). Another local store donated socks to go with each dress and there was a donation of bracelets to hekp with the ensemble. So far we've sent two boxes to Project Worth and Outreach.
I am working on trying to do something locally to incorporate what we do around the world. I will give updates as they come about. If you would like to help please email me at Southdag@yahoo.com.
