Made in Africa

I am not much interested in fashion, but I do admire this skirt that Ellie (14) made for Eileen (4). When the frame of her umbrella broke, Ellie removed the waterproof fabric and sewed the skirt that you see in the picture. It’s a little example of the African resourcefulness and frugality we see all around us, and Eileen will never again have to worry about wet knees during a rainstorm!
