Modest sewing pattern and clothing resources for women - Welcome, sewing pattern enthusiasts! The founder of Fashion Belle has moved and is still working to juggle family obligations with trying to bring a new line of modest women's sewing patterns to the point of publication. With the November 19, 2015, release of Drupal 8, an upgrade to the software on which this site is based, an overhaul to the site will be underway through the first quarter of 2016. In the meantime, use the tabs above to explore reviews of hundreds of other companies that provide modest clothing and sewing patterns.

Modesty in the Movies

Modest Red Ballgown from The Prince and Me 3 Movie

(Photo credits: The Prince and Me 3 photos are from The dress below is an altered version of a Maggie Sottero dress and the tiara is from Tiara Town.)

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.

Avoiding Counterfeit Wedding Dresses

Brides shopping online in preparation for their weddings may want to be cautious of websites that appear to sell name brand dresses at a fraction of retail prices. These sites, many in China, are creating knockoffs or counterfeits of other brands' designs. This practice made headlines in 2010 when 82 websites were shut down in an anti-piracy bust.
