Modest sewing pattern and clothing resources for women -

Welcome, sewing pattern enthusiasts! Things have been busy in 2014 at the home office of Fashion Belle. I had hoped that the launch of my sewing patterns for women would occur by early fall, but so far the work is still in progress. Half of this year has been taken with contract employment with other companies, and beyond that most of my spare time has been donated to unexpected home repairs and aiding 14 refugees who were settling in my area. Please keep checking back for progress on the pattern collection, and also use the tabs above to explore reviews of hundreds of other companies that provide modest clothing and sewing patterns.

Sewing Pattern Paper Overview

Samples of sewing pattern paper

This article provides an overview of the types of paper most commonly used for sewing patterns, from patterns made by hand, to patterns printed by large format office printers, to patterns printed by offset presses on jumbo tissue reels. Hopefully, this information which took weeks of research to compile will provide a head start for anyone seeking paper for a variety of sewing pattern applications.

Modesty in the Movies

Modest Red Ballgown from The Prince and Me 3 Movie

(Photo credits: The Prince and Me 3 photos are from Blu-Ray.com. The dress below is an altered version of a Maggie Sottero dress and the tiara is from Tiara Town.) Rare as it is to find modest costuming in movies these days, I was surprised to see this choice of a modest ballgown for the queen in the movie The Prince and Me 3.

Professional Dress Code Illustrations

Professional Dress Code Illustrations

February to May of each year is when my job as an enforcer of a professional dress code for high school students goes into action. Pictured are several illustrations that I prepared to be put into the instructions to help students such as those in past years who have failed to read the dress code and brought clothing that is inappropriate. The person with final authority over the dress code felt that my illustrations made the instructions too long, so they were not included, although most of my suggestions for improving the wording were included.
