Adorable girls from an Indian orphanage wearing our dresses.
We would love to have some sleeved dresses (size 10 and up is best) for our inventory, and I found some simple tutorials to get you started if you are interested in serving 500 Dresses in this way.
All of the dresses that we ship to India must have sleeves, and we don’t often have a lot of notice before a shipment is to go out. We send our dresses to India via missionary luggage, so we don’t plan shipment dates. The more of you who donate sleeved dresses, the easier it will be for us to fill a suitcase when we are given an opportunity to ship to India.
Thanks for considering helping us out by trying out one of these dress styles!

I slacked off yesterday and didn’t get a tutorial posted, but I’ve found a variation on the t-shirt dress today. This one has an elastic waist.

Wednesday’s link is one my friend Tara found.
It’s a simple t-shirt dress tutorial from Sew Delightful.
Below are photos of a couple t-shirt dress variations.
In keeping in line with my recent t-shirt dress kick, here’s a link to a blog I found with several t-shirt dress ideas.
Threading My Way
I underestimated the simplicity of creating a gathered edge and had to call my mom for advice, but after I fought with it for a while I finally won.
This was a pretty simple dress to make, but will be the only one I make unless I hunt down some girl shirts. I had to dig deep through the boy clothes to find this gender-neutral one.
P.S. Don’t tell Lewis I turned his red t-shirt into a dress 😉
