Last Auguest, when Project HOPE Art was at Nadine’s orphanage in Port-Au-Prince, it became abundantly clear just how few clothes many of her girls have. The items they do own are well worn at best, some just barely holding together. HOPE Art would like to change this with a personal touch by starting a Homemade Dress Drive. We are inviting all seamstresses, beginner to advanced, to make one or more simple sundresses to be hand delivered to the orphanage in Jan. of 2012. This project is being aided by “Oliver + S”, an online pattern company who has kindly agreed to let us use their free sundress pattern that you can download HERE. Please email me with any questions and thanks in advance to all who take this on.
UPDATE: As of March 1st, Hope Art has received 480 sundresses sent from around the world. Our commitment to this drive continues as we share our collection with as many Haitian girls as possible. Thank you everyone!
