SOLD OUT! 100 Dresses Campaign

SOLD OUT! 100 Dresses Campaign


Our Dresses are now sold out! Please give our listing a read to see what we are up to during our Training Program. We always need donations and are currently looking for used cell phones and Laptops to help The Sisters Cooperative maintain their business operations after we leave Rwanda.

Buy a Dress, help a Cooperative! By donating and ordering a handcrafted lined, linen dress, you are helping to provide equipment and a one month training course in garment construction to a women’s sewing cooperative in Rwanda.

Cooperatives are a safe place for women who have survived trauma to find community and employment. Many of these women have little formal education but have learned how to sew in order to support themselves and their children

Help Doda reach its goal of selling 100 dresses, to raise funds for our upcoming training program in January/February 2019.

Pre-order your dress today and choose from almost 50 design combinations!

Please refer to the Size Chart (in inches) on the Measuring Your Body image for a guide to the dress sizes.
While designing your dress, keep in mind the shape of your body. If you have a shorter torso, consider the ‘no waistband’ option. If you are average to tall, consider the ‘waistband’ as a design option. We require your measurements so we can ensure you are sent the perfect size. If you are unsure, please contact us so we can help you choose the right size.

Worried about the fit? No worries! Doda’s dresses have been drafted with alterations in mind! There is extra seam allowance in the side seams and the center back which can allow the dress to be easily altered for the perfect fit.

If you are combining orders, make sure to select quantity as 1, and fill out the order form for each person after selecting “Add to cart”. If you would like to order more than 1 dress, make sure to do the same if you are selecting different design features or colours.

Dresses will be shipped in March 2019 from Ontario, Canada. Group shipping and delivery can be requested, please contact us to arrange if needed. If you are local to Sew Perfect Inc. in Cannington, ON and would like local pickup, please Select Antarctica as the country for your shipping address. Use your correct address for the billing address. This will apply free shipping and we will send you an email notification for pickup or delivery arrangements.

Make sure to follow Doda on Instagram or Facebook @dodainternational to watch the progress of YOUR dress and the training program in January/February 2019.

Your donation goes directly to the project! Dresses are not refundable or exchangeable. Although we strive for perfection, if there is a construction issue, please contact us and return your dress to Doda International within 30 days of receiving it and we will replace or repair it at no additional cost.
