Pretty in pink!

It's been weeks since a I made a little frock for the "Dress a girl around the world" scheme.
Today was fun day Monday and the lovely Di had sent us a pretty, pink, floral duvet and toning pink sheet. So whilst Annie was making 5 pairs of shorts for the boys, I made these three little frocks.
I made three different sizes and trimmed them up with little lace and crochet flowers on the pockets.

These will be posted to Louise of Sew Scrumptious who has co-ordinated the collection of frocks and shorts ready to be distributed to Africa and India.

She has collected over 1300 frocks so far, plus a few pairs of shorts. She would like to collect another 50 pairs of shorts before June - hence the pairs Annie blogged about today.
If anyone thinks they could help out, then follow the link and have a go - it is a simple pattern and quick and easy to make up.
I came home and found a T shirt and 3 pairs of jeans, which I will cut up to make more shorts - waste not want not!!!!!

Thanks for a happy, busy funday Monday Annie!!
x Jo

Don't the dresses look fab Jo. Let's hope there are others out there that can make a few pairs of shorts for the great cause too.

JHi Jo,
Feel like I have been away forever.
Family illness has taken over my life some what in Jan/Feb and then The Wedding of The Year took up most of Mar/Apr. Hopefully I can be back on track again. Have so missed WOYWW and making these little dresses up. Will see if I can rummage up some old t shirts and make a few shorts for the boys.
Hugs Mrs A.
