Creative Seamstress Makes Dresses With Insulin Pump Pockets For Girls With Type 1 Diabetes

A seamstress in Hanover, Massachusetts, has a new, never-before-seen specialty. She makes dresses for little girls who are living with diabetes. After years of working as a police officer, Julie Christian has decided to start a second career, she has been sewing with the past year.

Julie’s dream was to make beautifully tailored suits for women. However last summer, she received an unexpected request from a little girl. Ten-year-old Julia Looker has type 1 diabetes. Julia recalls “I asked if she could make me a dress customised for a diabetic pump.”

After accepting the task she made a lovely floral dress with a pocket to hide the pump. There’s also a hole along the waist seam so Julia can feed the pump wire into the attachment on her leg. Julia said, “It’s really convenient,I like it a lot.”

The dress allowed Julia to wear a dress without having to wear shorts underneath to hold the pump. Soon after, other moms of girls with type 1 diabetes heard Julia’s success story.

They, too, started contacting Julie for customised dresses for their daughters. Julie had found her new calling. “It wasn’t women’s suiting as I anticipated; it was a whole different idea,” she said.

Take a look at the video below to see her incredible creations.
