Recommending Church Dress Patterns

Recommended Posts

My daughter has turned 13 now and the dresses she has are getting a bit small.

 

We decided to go to several stores and found dresses that are either too inappropate to wear or too expensive($300).

 

She is about 5'6" and have a size 12 girls waist and but the dress are way too short(mid thigh).  The correct size for her would be a girls 18 or women 0 but the dresses is too baggy or not modest.

 

I am requesting any simple patterns that are church modest and something your daughter would wear.  I know enough of sewing to do my church shirts, but I have not done any dresses before.

 

Also can you recommend a good dress material that is good for the winter?

I would recommend going into a fabric store and looking through the pattern books.  But don't buy the patterns there.  Most of them these days run between $15-20 a piece.  Yikes.

 

What I do is write down the pattern number and search amazon for that pattern.  I can usually get new patterns for about $3 and add another $3 for shipping is a heck of a lot cheaper than purchasing them at full price.

 

I'm sure my boss at Hobby Lobby (work there part time in the fabric dept) wouldn't like that I'm passing this on.  :)

Maxi skirts are abundant and inexpensive, and also easy to make, as I understand it.

Had another thought - Have you looked at sites like sistermissionaryfashion.com?  I haven't shopped there myself but modesty is guaranteed and I'm sure they'd be reasonable priced.  

 

Also, as far as winter fabric - corduroy comes to mind.

 

Hope that helps!
