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.

For that reason, I have selected a mannequin for the fashion photography of Fashion Belle modest sewing patterns, pictured here.

Makeup is somewhat of a controversial topic among people who choose to dress modestly. Some prefer to avoid makeup entirely, while others use heavy makeup in an effort to compensate for the lack of glamour usually associated with modest clothing. My own view is that makeup can be beneficial for disguising skin flaws and brightening the face but that makeup should be natural in its total effect.
