By what standards do we live ?

                                                  Dress found at

 It is increasingly difficult to find clothing that is beautiful and pretty.  There always seems to be some sexualization in the designing of the garment i.e., bare shoulders, low necklines, very fitted over bust and hips, short skirts, revealing fabrics, etc..  It is as though if there wasn't something "sexy" about a garment it wouldn't sell. Major pattern companies like McCalls, Vogue, Simplicity, and Butterick seem to have taken some of that to heart also.

Along that line while I was home due to snow closure of church I listened to a very poignant sermon called Female Modesty   I highly recommend listening to it. 

Classics are timeless in that one can use current fabrics, adjust collars, sleeves, add extra couture touches or just add pieces that coordinate well.  Classic patterns can be used many times.  They are investments as well as the classic clothing made from them.

If you are honestly trying to please the Lord Jesus Christ your desires would be to act and live as much as possible with the reliance and guidance of the Holy Spirit and by studying God's word and following his reasons for you to be a gracious, loving, kind, and gentle woman and dressing in a complementary way. 

"Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ."       Philippians 1:27a
