Sewist’s Name: Alice Bowers from Carson City, Nevada

Pattern: Peasant Dress Pattern from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom

Featured Date: 02-21-24

The DAG (Dress a Girl) label on the pockets helps  protect the children from human trafficking. The Northern Nevada DAG workshop meets every 3 month in Reno, NV. “Dress a Girl around the World” is an organization associated with “Hope for Women International”. It makes my heart happy to make a dress that will bring a smile to a little girl somewhere.
