Modest Mondays

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!


  1. What great ideas! And you are correct about attitude being just as (if not even more) important than physical dress. :)

  2. It has been a while since I viewed the pattern books...maybe six months or so, but I was having trouble at that time finding modest patterns as well. Thrift stores are definitely a good place to look because it is much more modest than can be found in the stores, ready-made.

    Thank you, Regina, for the time you have invested in this series. I have enjoyed it.

  3. Good Evening Mrs. Regina,

    This has been a good series. Thanks for sharing your tips and suggestions.


  4. Regina,

    I just came upon your blog and it is truly a lovely place to visit.

    I loved all of your ideas for dressing modestly. In fact, I might borrow your idea for the clothing exchange at my church.

    I just started a blog and if you have time, I would be so happy if you could stop by and visit.



  5. Good morning, dear friend! I just loved this post and I must say that a clothing exchange sounds like a lot of fun :) I will have to remember that.

    Wishing you a joyous and blessed week! Hugs!

WARNING: Some Parts of This Post Is Controversial!

I wonder what would happen if men had a march similar to the recent women's marches demanding their right not to be exposed to half dressed women in the workplace, in church, on the street, on magazine covers, etc? What if they marched demanding their right to be treated like men and not a child by their wives and girlfriends? To be allowed to be a dad instead of their child being killed in the womb? To not be portrayed on television and movies as idiots?

What would happen if they  wore (like inappropriately shaped hats the women wore on their heads to prove their womanhood ) on their heads inappropriately  shaped hats to prove their manhood?

 Satan has been telling lies to women ever since The Garden:

" I can wear this see through dress! It's my body!"

"It's his problem if my low cut blouse causes him to lust"

"It's not a baby, it's tissue! It's my body!"

"Motherhood degrades women"

25 Years Ago...

I married the love of my life. Back then I couldn't see 25 years into the future. I never imagined having three daughters.  We didn't anticipate struggles on both our parts but we are so grateful for the way the Lord has brought us through. Things are not perfect between but we continue to trust God and know that He can work things out.
And now for your giggling pleasure, here are a few pictures from our wedding. This was before I was into a conservative plain lifestyle. Sorry for the blurriness.

For Today

 Looking out my window  ...It has stopped snowing. It's been a mixture of snow, hail and rain today and it is very cold and windy out.
I am thinking... about whether I should prayerfully and gently confront a sister in the Lord who is being dishonest about something, though I hoped I had imagined it, sadly today I discovered it was true.☹
I am thankful... We made it home safely today after going into town and getting caught in the snowstorm. God is good!
One of my favorite things... is to read Keepers at Home magazine

I am wearing... a purple flowered dress covered up by my apron and black slippers

I am creating... well I will be sewing up some hanging veil head coverings. Some of the ones I have are getting stained. My middle daughter suggested I save my white veils for church or other church related activities. My husband suggested that I keep the stained ones for when I clean the house. They are so wise in their suggestions…
