These are two of the skirts I helped finish for the local sewing charity "Crafting Comfort." They partner with SAFE Alliance, which is a combo of women's and children's services for victims of violence, abuse, abandonment, and more. These skirt were going to their service for free nurse-provided forensic exams for rape victims. Since their clothes would be taken as evidence, this gives the nurse volunteers some pretty clothes (they also give out soft t-shirts, but those are purchased and donated) to give to the women after the exams that they can wear home and keep. The emphasis was on comfortable fit and cheery fabrics.

The skirts are simple 4-gore trumpet skirts, and the pieces were already cut and serged together in a previous work session. I made casings, ran the elastic through, sewed the hems, and added sizing tags. I completed 4 in the 2 hours I was there. Smiley Other ladies worked on fabric grocery bags, drawstring bags for children's toiletries, soft sleep masks, or chemo camisoles (to hold the pumps/ports).

I love sewing with this group. I don't get to go every time they meet, but they are always super welcoming. Everything is provided, including the machines, so you just show up and sew! This time, one of my best friends went with me, and they were happy to have her jump right in, too! A wonderful time and a wonderful cause to support.
