Quick answers: Yes, we are still going strong. There’s no deadline.The dresses go out every week. Although we have sent more than 6 million, we will not run out of children that need your dresses.
Before sending: Group the dresses by size (small, medium and large) and enclose a self-addressed envelope so we can let you know when they arrive (please do not request a signature at delivery!)
Elastic is stronger in the casing but if you use STRONG ribbon, be sure to tack it down so it stays in the casing and doesn’t come out! And please, no straight pins!
