There were a couple of ladies that have asked me about modest dress and what I am doing now. Well, I still think that women and girls look best in dresses/skirts. However, they are hard to come by and not always practical, in my opinion. (like if I am gardening and don't want bugs crawling on my legs or getting my skirt hung on a vine) My life is quite busy with the littles and cheapest way to wear dresses is to make them. I don't have a lot of time to sew for 4 people.
Right now we wear shorts, capris and dresses. On a hot day a nice loose dress feels great, especially if you have floor vents and can stand over the air conditioner, LOL. I am planning to sew some more light dresses for myself and maybe buy some online. I do feel much more confident and prettier in a dress. I feel more powerful in jeans, more authoritative, so I save those for when I go out of the house or whatever. It all just depends on my mood.
But, for the most part, I wear dresses on Sunday and 1-2 times per week. I think it's an individual journey and what the Lord speaks to you personally. Search it out like I did; get quiet to hear His voice and He will tell you. The other day at the water park I saw some pre-teen girls in bikinis. I was really disturbed about it because they were nice and curvy and it was distracting. I don't want my girls to distract others or for men to be ogling them, so I plan to enforce modesty a bit more, especially in public. For the most part they are always covered, but with a swimsuit we're usually at home, so it doesn't matter to us. I think sleeveless shirts/dresses, so long as it doesn't show the bra etc. is fine; dresses/shorts at the knee is fine and obviously showing cleavage or tight things on the rear are out!
That it is where I am at this point. I would like to do mostly dresses again, I just have to make time to work on it :)
