{Day 1}

Here we go!!!Β  The 100 days of wearing this dress to raise $50,000 for orphans in India has begun. πŸ˜€Β  Today I am wearing the dress simply as it is so you can see what it looks like, but wait till you see what I am going to do with it…!Β  Feeling incredibly blessed to have an outfit to wear when the orphans in India have lost everything.Β  I am helping in the nursery at church today and I know that seeing the little babies will make the reality that so many children don’t have parents very poignant.

    And you’re off!!
    I’m so excited to see what our Lord is going to do in you and through you during this wonderful venture/adventure. I know your life will change… if nothing else, you’ll probably never want to wear black again. hee hee!
    Hoping that you raise far more than you could have imagined and that God is glorified in all of this.
    YOU’RE AMAZING!!

    I just stumbled randomly upon your site. I am intrigued. Also, are you sharing the pattern used for the dress? If so, I would love to know the pattern brand/number. You have shown some great versatility with it.

    So I’m way late and just stumbled across your project and I love the whole idea behind it! You did a great job each day making the outfit unique as well. I would love it, and I’m sure others would as well, if you would let us know if your friend who made the dress for you would be interested in making other ones, I for one would love to have a dress like that!

      Chantel I’m so glad you came by. πŸ™‚ Thank you for your encouragement. God has done great things! I am grateful for all the help I had with the outfits… πŸ˜€
      At this point the lady that made my dress is unable to make more but I will definitely put on the blog if she wants to make them. Maybe!
