"The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God." Deuteronomy 22:5

How do you feel about dressing Modest?
For those of you that want to dress modest and don't know where to find modesty dresses, or coverings, I have a place for you to check out, where there is modesty cape dresses, gently worn, handmade by the Amish and Mennonite Women from Lancaster, Pa. By the way these groups of women still only wear dresses to this day.
Although there is no where stated in the Bible that women can't wear slacks and have to wear dresses. This is all in a matter of choice and how you feel about the issue of being modest.
If you don't know what a cape dress is, I will tell you. A "Cape Dress" conceals the figure better than a regular dress and is the most modest dress to be found. The cape is sewn at the neck and waist only covering the front and back bodice.From the back of the cape hides all straps and body lines.
They are pleasing and are comfortable to wear. If you would like to check some out here is the link: copy and paste to your broswer.

We don't have many Amish or Mennonite women in our area but when I am in central PA sometimes I see Mennonite women.  I actually think women look more beautiful dressed modestly.  They seem to have a sense of self-respect.  They truly look more feminine to me.  When I see young girls dressed trashy I feel sad.  I don't blame the young people though.  I think it is industry and the media that force these styles on young people.  Years ago to most girls what they were inside was more important than outward appearances.  Today the media tells young girls that they have to be tall and thin and if they aren't well built enough they can have surgery to fix it.  When are we going to tell young people to love themselves as God made them and to have respect for themselves.

Peace - Mark
