I am amazed that the requests to be involved in The Hundred Skirts Project continue to pour in. Almost daily! I thought I better get on the stick and post a progress report so that you all know what sizes are covered and which remain. So here it is...the count includes skirts which have been sewn by me, skirts I have already received from others and skirts promised, but not yet received. I will update this as skirts arrive and new participants come forward. Please know that if you had your heart set on sewing a size already covered, please go right ahead and do it anyway! A new dorm will soon be added and when it is completed, enrollment will grow. There will always be a need. And how cool if we exceeded our goal! So do what your heart tells you. :)
April 6th UPDATE - Received word of six more skirts being done by Sharon (see comments for link to her blog). I have updated the chart below to reflect that. We are well past the halfway point now with 68 skirts accounted for! Can I confess that I sit here puddling up and grabbing for the Kleenix?
Size 3Ts - DONE
Size 5Ts - DONE
Size 6 - 9 DONE, 1 cut out, but not yet assembled (mine)
Size 7 - 2 DONE, 8 NEEDED
Size 8 - 2 DONE, 8 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 community service luncheon I will be having on April 15th. There will be 8 teenaged girls sewing skirts and I think most of them want to do their own sizes, which should be somewhere in the Sizes 12-Misses Small range.
In addition, to the children's sizes, I also need some Misses sizes for the older teenaged girls. Some of them are Plus sized. I will need to hear from the director for size guidance on these. I will post when I hear more about that, but for now these are the sizes I will need, but probably not as many of each as were needed for the children's sizes.

Misses Medium -
Misses Large -
Misses XLarge - Have 1
Can't begin to tell you how stunned and appreciative I am of the overwhelming response to this. I fully intended to plug away at these on my own, but how wonderful to get all this help! It's making it go so much faster which in light of the moved-up August deadline is just a godsend. Ya'll are the best! We always hear about how dangerous the Internet is and all the awful stories of predation and identity theft. But you never hear about stories like these...the amazing people doing great things for people they don't even know.
