Hello dear ladies! I hope you all had a pleasant weekend. For the month of March I've been posting on modesty on Mondays. Today is the last day but that doesn't mean I won't explore the topic again.
Today I want to share ideas on where to find modest clothing.
1. Thrift stores. There are lots of modest outfits one can put together from thrift store finds.
2. Sew your own. You can find patterns at fabric stores and online. For those of you who have much experience with sewing you can alter patterns to make it more modest. The same goes for thrift store clothing. I would like to add that unless you have very strong convictions get colors of fabric you really like. Being modest doesn't mean wearing ugly drab colors. A pastor once preached that you don't have to wear potato sacks to be modest. He was exaggerating of course but he was telling the ladies to choose appropriate fabrics and colors.
3. Hold a free clothing exchange. This is a lot of fun. All you do get together with several ladies who bring their used unwanted clothing to exchange with other ladies. No money is exchanged at all. You can start small by organizing it at your church. You can have them bring anything they want,clothing, shoes, jewelry, etc. The sky's the Limit! The rule is everything must be free.
So everyone goes home with new to them clothing. If a lady or girl has nothing to contribute to an exchange that's okay. They can come anyway.
I hope this post has been helpful. Before I close this post I do want to warn us all about being prideful in our modesty. There is nothing worse than a Christian lady who is modestly dressed and having a holier than thou attitude. It is a poor witness on our part and grieves the Lord.
I apologize for posting this so late. I got busy this morning and forgot to post. Have a blessed day!
