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.

Modest Style by Fashion Belle

Tall book stacks at a library

Library book stacks have been home to fashion, beauty and health books from thousands of authors. The viewpoint that seems so often missing from these books is one of modesty. In that light, this online collection of entries about modest style, taken from blog posts on the Fashion Belle website, serves to help fill the gap. Check back from time to time to see new entries.

Basic Steps in Starting a Modest Clothing Business

Experience working in the fashion industry can be a valuable stepping stone toward starting your own business producing modest apparel. Even with no prior experience, an entrepreneur's knowledge of the target market is the first key to success. Most small entrepreneurs are part of the group they target, allowing them to innately gravitate toward correct product and marketing choices. Small businesses must aim for a target market with laser accuracy in order to compete with large brands that offer generic styling.

Customizing the Acquia Prosper Theme

Acquia Prosper Theme for Drupal 6 from Fusion Drupal Themes

In the process of searching for a theme for the first Fashion Belle site in 2010, Dries Buytaert's company Acquia emerged at the top with its free provision of the Acquia Prosper Theme developed by Fusion Drupal Themes. The original Fashion Belle website was live until 2011 with the Fusion Acquia Prosper Theme for Drupal 6 (see screenshot at right). Finding the lines of code that controlled various elements took days of work.
