Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

The human form may be a work of art, brought to exquisitely rendered life through the medium of marble, bronze, and other easily malleable ores, but damned if they don’t look stylish sporting the latest in contemporary fashions. With the original concept photos shot by Leo and ‘shoppin applied by Alexis, they’ve updated several classical sculptures into hip new models, ready to strut on the Parthenon. Ah yeah Zeus, workit… the camera loves you baby, come on give it to me.
