New dress!

My mama and I took a trip to the local thrift store yesterday(and let me tell you, it's huge!), and really had a wonderful time together. While there, among other things, I found this beautiful tan jumper/dress. I just love it-it's so modest, feminine, and very comfortable! It's also in like new condition; thrift stores really are a blessing-you can oftentimes find really nice clothing items for very low prices. For instance, this pretty dress only cost around $3! I just love how it has a fitted bodice, but then flares out and becomes flowy near the bottom!

  4. I love thrift store shopping! We've found if it is possible to find modest clothing there, it's cheaper than sewing it! (I do like sewing long, modest skirts though!) It is a beautiful jumper; I haven't seen one like that before. (just the straight ones like I own)

    Aw, thank you so much!! That is so sweet of you! I am so pleased with it! I'm wearing it for the first time today(as I only got it just yesterday =]) and it is SO comfortable! I just love it!!! It is so pretty, feminine and modest, and I just feel so blessed to have found it! Oh, my Mama and I really love to find good deals like this; we thoroughly enjoy our trips to thrift stores!! ;)

    Thank you so much for your comment! I hope you find something, too! That would be wonderful! I'm sure you will, and when you do, you'll have to let me know all about it and send me a pic as well! :) Aw, thank you so much!! Honestly, I couldn't be happier with the fit! I've never been able to find anything before that actually fits me so well!! It's truly a blessing. I'm doing well. :) Thank you, and I hope you and your husband are doing well, too! Have a blessed weekend!! :)

    Allison,
    So do I!!! It's so much fun!! And it's great mother/daughter time as well, and it teaches me frugality, which I will very much need as a homemaker of my own one day. It's a very valuable lesson to learn! That's for sure. Yes, that's true! I love sewing my own things but it's a blessing to find them so cheap and in as good condition at thrift stores! What patterns do you used for long, modest skirts? What I would really really love to find is a pattern somewhere that I could use to make myself a skirt(s) just like the ones the women wore on Little House on the Prairie. I just love those!! They're so modest, distinctly feminine, and so flowy, with a lot of fabric (which I really like! =]). I just don't know where to find a pattern like that..... Do you have any ideas? Thank you! I,too, have only ever owned the straight ones, and I really love those, but I really really love this one because I enjoy wearing more flowy things.

  7. Rebekah,
    Well, my Granny taught my sister and me sewing "basics" last summer, and we made a simple elastic skirt. I love the pattern though because it's so easy! It is a Butterick B5431, and we made skirt B. It's not a straight skirt, which I like. I tried starting to sew a Sense and Sensibility dress, which was a great increase in difficulty from a skirt, and it didn't get completed because I got stuck. :( I would love to be able to sew more! I especially want to be able to sew those cute little girl jumpers for my daughters, at a length below the knee! :) I too like skirts and dresses that flow out. (they're usually more comfy anyway) And it's easier to do stuff when after church we're playing games or watching little ones! :)

  8. What a beautiful jumper!! It looks really pretty on you. I love the orange top underneath, it's a perfect modest outfit! That was a really good deal!

  9. I love your new dress - I *love* dresses/jumpers of that type, with a blouse or t-shirt to wear underneath. I bought one for myself not long ago too!
