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.

Cell Phone and Internet Service in New York City

Verizon is the most popular cell service provider in New York City, with a solid reputation for signal reception. Wait until you get to New York to subscribe—or ask if Verizon will switch your number for free if you subscribe before you go—so you can get a New York telephone number, less confusing to employers reviewing your resume. Friends of this author who used Verizon reported great reception, even inside buildings.

Banks in New York City

Chase Bank is everywhere in New York and offers outstanding service, including online banking and ATMs covering the city. Chase branches are also located in most places around the United States, so open an account before you go to make your first few weeks in New York much easier. If you want to switch to a different bank after you arrive in New York, that is fine, but plan on having at least $5,000 in cash available in a Chase account for your first month.
