If you have been with us for any of our Skirting the Issue events you will know that we always love to sew skirts for girls in Foster Care. Foster Care has a special place in both of our hearts that you can read about HERE and HERE. And so sewing skirts for girls to wear on the first day of school is such a special project.
What Patterns to Use?
Over the years we have put together many many different skirt tutorials that you can use to make skirts from, or you are welcome to use any skirt tutorials or patterns that you have. You can go back through the archives for Skirting the Issue HERE to find all of those tutorials, or here are some of our favorite skirt round ups below.
Click HERE for the list of 86 different skirt tutorials for littler girls.
And HERE is a link to 20 different patterns for teen skirt tutorials.
Where can I donate skirts?
Donate locally! Because Skirting the Issue has become so big we do ask that you donate locally for the things that you make. (Which is why we only ask for a picture of the items you make Two of the charities are linked above and have sections with lots of information on where to donate. For the skirts and pillowcases we ask that you find local foster care closets or children’s hospitals (or other hospitals) that will accept donations of those kinds. And as always if all else fails you can send them to us–we do have local resources that we have established great relationships with to be able to donate items here.
Our mailing address is: PO BOX 753, Lehi, UT 84043
Where do I link up the skirts I make?
The post to link up all your skirts is found HERE and you can link up any skirts you make to donate to local Foster Care closets.
And thank you again for all of your support for this amazing summer charity. We know that we could not do any of this without each and every one of you and your examples of sewing for good.
