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

A seamstress in Hanover, Massachusetts, has a unique, never-before-seen talent. She makes dresses for little girls who are fighting diabetes.

Julie Christian has only been sewing dresses for the past year or so. She decided to start a second career after many brave years as a police officer.

Originally, Julie’s desire was to make impecably tailored suits for women. But last summer, she received an unexpected request from a little girl that she couldn’t refuse.

Ten-year-old Julia Looker currently has type 1 diabetes, and reached out to Julie.

“I asked if she could make me a dress customized for a diabetic pump,” Julia recalled.

Julie agreed to the plan. She made a beautiful 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.

“It’s really convenient,” Julia stated. “I like it a lot.”

The beautiful dress allows Julia to wear a dress without having to wear shorts underneath to hold the pump in place.

Soon after, other moms of girls with type 1 diabetes heard about Julia’s success story. They, too, started contacting Julie for customized dresses for their amazing daughters. Julie had found her new calling.

“It wasn’t women’s suiting as I anticipated; it was a whole different idea,” she said.
