I’m always hearing mothers say how hard it is to dress their daughters in modest clothes. When you walk in the little girl section, it feels like you should be in the teenager section. :/ The world wants innocent girls to wear clothes with words on their bottoms, ripped and tattered looking clothing, or dresses that are short, tight, flashy, and downright provocative.
With that being said, it’s not impossible! I do very little sewing for my girls. I find most of their clothes on ThredUP (get a $20 credit for new customers through that link, plus use the code: SEPT40 to save 40% off your first order! That code expires September 30th so don’t wait!). Other places I’ve found good clothes for them are children’s consignment sales, Target and Kohls. If I’m buying brand new clothes, I really like finding a good sale at Kohls as I find their clothes seem to hold up well.
Sometimes the outfits are simple. This skirt and top for my 7 year old was both from Target. I’ve found Target has been carrying little girl’s maxi skirts for awhile now. I’ve had mixed success with the quality of them, but this black skirt has held up well.
I used an x-small dangle flexi clip from Lilla Rose to pull her hair back. She loves wearing flexi clips, I think besides how pretty they are, it makes her feel grown up. 🙂
