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.

Reality Check: Thin is Not Always In

(Photo credit: The pleated skirt, a style that flatters only the flattest of waistlines, from Lands' End) The fashion distress of my high school years was the knife-pleat skirt such as the Lands' End style pictured. Despite being thin as a teenager, my stomach was never flat or even indented, as seemed to be the case with the glamorous girls among my student peers who chose partially stitched-down pleat styles to fulfill the skirt requirement of our educational dress code.

Natural Makeup and Skin Care

When dressing modestly, other factors of appearance tend to stand out more than they do for the women who do not dress as modestly. For example, when a celebrity wears whatever she's wearing, how often do journalists comment on the hairstyle or the makeup? Sometimes they do, but the more revealing the clothing, the more the focus is on the body. Dressing modestly means people naturally focus more on the face than the clothes, which is a good thing!

Long Hair Care and Styling Techniques

Hairbrushes and combs used for long hair

Hair length fashion trends change, but long hair has always been considered a beautiful fashion accessory for females. This is reflected in a verse written thousands of years ago in the Bible, "If a woman has long hair, it is her glory . . ." (I Corinthians 11:14). In our culture, we see the beauty of long hair for girls favored in the design of toy dolls and animated film heroines. Celebrity women often use hair extensions to create the illusion of longer hair. Women who appreciate modesty in appearance often adopt long hairstyles, inspired by Biblical references to femininity that pair modesty with long hair.
