Where We Stand - UPDATE

Requests to be involved in The Hundred Skirts Project continue to arrive daily. Just today I had 8 more skirts committed to the project. So...guess that means another update is in order!

Here is our current count, which includes skirts which have been sewn by me, skirts I have already received from others and skirts promised, but not yet received. Please know that if you had your heart set on sewing a size already covered, please go right ahead and do it anyway! It would be wonderful if we exceeded our goal. The Guatemalan government is in need of more homes for orphans and the orphanage has plans for expansion. So if we exceed our goal, that will just mean that those coming in in the future can be given a new outfit when they arrive! Wouldn't that be nice?

For those who are waiting to hear about the sizes needed for the older teens and plus sizes, my Dad tells me that the director has received my email. She does not have internet access at the orphanage and can only communicate infrequently when she is able to travel to an access location. But she will be getting back to me soon. I will post as soon as I have more info.

So without further ado...the current count...

Size 3Ts - DONE
Size 5Ts - DONE
Size 6 - 9 DONE, 1 cut out, but not yet assembled (mine)
Size 7 - 5 DONE, 5 NEEDED
Size 8 - 6 DONE, 4 NEEDED
Size 10 - 8 DONE, 2 NEEDED
Size 12 - 3 DONE, 7 NEEDED
Size 14 - 1 DONE, 9 NEEDED
Size 16 - 4 DONE, 6 NEEDED

8 Skirts promised, but sizes unknown. These are the attendees of a Mother-Daughter sewing bee I will be having tomorrow. There will be 8 teen-aged girls sewing skirts. I think most of them want to do their own sizes, which should be somewhere in the Sizes 12-Misses Small range. I know two girls plans to do smaller sizes.

Hi, I came over from Sharon's to peek in- I'm going to spend some time perusing some of the beautiful skirts you have already posted....and find the beginning of this project.

Charity, What a lovely time the girls had today sewing on skirts. They are going to try to get a couple more done at home to add to the project. You made it such a special day for all of us and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. -Jennifer
