I am excited to be taking part in this! I just had a couple questions: What sizes are most needed? And do we need to buy these Hope 4 labels to sew onto the dresses? Thanks!

Suzanne said...

We can use any size but usually need more of the size 6 to 12. If you are sending the dresses to me I have labels and can easily add them to the dresses. If you are sending them to other State Reps you will need to ask them if they will add the labels.

You make such adorable dresses Suzanne! I want to come sew with you! If anyone sends me dresses to Tucson I have the labels too.
