That’s a lot of love in one single heart! Lillian Weber hopes she can make a thousand dresses for poor girls before she reaches her 100th birthday
For the past three years, 99-year-old Lillian Weber has been sewing a new dress on a daily basis, for children in need. Her daughter, Linda Purcell, said Mrs. Weber customizes each dress: “When she makes those little dresses she thinks that they’re not good enough; so she has to add something up front to make it special, to give it her personal mark.”
Weber starts each dress in the morning, takes a midday break, and then adds the finishing, special touches in the afternoon. Then, her daughters deliver the garments to an apartment complex for the elderly in Davenport, Iowa, where they are sent to the organization along with other dresses made by residents.
