The transformation of a dress

A few months back we introduced you to Caylee Couture, a new project for Danya's Gift named after a little angel who fought hard her whole, but short life.  I met Caylee's Momma while doing some volunteering at the hospital. She has become one of our board members and when it came time to name this project Caylee was the right choice. When a dress is donated I have promised to take a photo of the dress, and then all that it becomes. These photos will always be shared on our Facebook page. Often it seems like there should be more outfits made out of a gown, but remember that sue to seams and decoration some times parts of the dress end up to small to make a full piece. This means that I save these parts and use them to accessorize or piece together an outfit from the parts of other dresses.

It is fitting then that I share with you Caylee's Grandma's gown's transformation here.
 This gown turned into a wrap gown for a preemie
 And 3 full term-3 month old outfits.


Gowns are always needed. We are planning a drop off at the end of June, so please consider helping us out.

It's Official!

I am pleased to announce that Danya's Gift is officially a 501c3 Federally recognized Community Charity! Now it's time to seek out some grants and really see what we can do! So excited!
