Little Helpers Dresses are hand made with all profits going to New Zealand charities. When you buy your Little Helpers Dress you get to choose which of our two charities you want the donation to go to: Starship Foundation or Pet Refuge.

MATERIALS– Each Little Helpers Dress is made using 100% natural machine washable materials. The skirts are 100% cotton fabric. The knitted bodice is made up of different summer yarns, eg cotton, bamboo, linen. We aim to buy our materials at the best price we possibly can, providing a larger donation to our charities.
