Written from the ‘voice’ of the dress, this charming book tells the story of all the steps to transform a simple blank T-shirt into a beautiful dress that would delight any girl. With full-color pictures on almost every page, volunteers are shown doing everything from selecting the heart appliques to the final pressing. The dress is so excited when it is actually given to a beautiful girl, Maria, who lives in an orphanage in Peru.
This book, written by one of the faithful sewing volunteers, shows how the dresses (and shirts) are actually made. It will make a wonderful gift for anyone who is interested in learning more about this ministry. It is also appropriate for young children as they follow all the steps as the dress explains what is happening.
A DVD in the back of the book tells about the beginning and ongoing ministry of Dresses for Orphans.
