Dresses and Skirts

I was reading from other blogs and was a little surprised. I guess I just didn't realize that many women don't wear dresses and skirts all the time? And they seem to find it difficult? Very interesting....

Okay, so here are some adorable posts I found from some other blogs about this:

And here is another one:

What do you all think about this? I absolutely love these posts. They are darling.

Do you all wear dresses or skirts all the time? Or do you find it difficult?

Isn't "Following the Ancient Paths" wonderful? On one of the yahoo groups I belong to, they have just been discussing the issue of dresses versus pants.

I've been wearing long skirts and dresses for about 10 years now. Sometimes I get a little tired of getting tangled up in the yardage. :)

I'd like to figure out a modest outfit I could make to wear that I wouldn't get caught up in. Then I'd have something to alternate with the dresses and skirts.

Hello Mrs White

When we were in 'organised' church, I wore dresses and skirts all the time. Nowadays, I still wear them a lot, but due to the nature of our daily quests, I wear pants when working up ladders or hanging off forklifts. Truth be told, I also wear jeans when we go out, too. Not often, but some times. I love wearing dresses, and I love the feel of long hair. I think it is most feminine and lovely. The dresses I like the most are those with a French twist - the layered look, in textured fabrics, with a tiny cardigan (bolero style)over them. I also love boots in a variety of colours! It's not difficult to wear dresses, and I would, if I had a life constantly at home, performing the 'gentler' of tasks (which I adore), but I have to be a 'Jill of all Trades' and help where I can, and oftentimes, it's just not practical.

More than you probably need to know...

Love and blessings,
Mrs De Bruin

I find it very difficult. Growing up I was a total tomboy and dresses just did NOT work for me. I am getting better but I believe my girls are way better than I.

I wear dresses/skirts only and have for about 16 years now. Mine stems from a conviction about modesty and wanting to clearly show gender distinctions.

But I don't judge others in this--it's between them, God and their husband. (o:

Oh and thanks for visiting my blog the other day and leaving a *lovely* comment.

Many Blessings,
Michele

Your original post was so long ago, I don't know if you'll even see this comment. I'm like Michele. I only wear skirts and dresses. I threw out my pants after being convicted by a verse in Deuteronomy 22:5. My husband looked up the word abomination in the dictionary and he told me "Do you know that abomination means extreme disgust and hatred?" I started out wearing skirts and dresses because I didn't want my Lord to feel disgust and hatred about the way I dress. But it didn't take long to start reaping the blessings of my new conviction. I started acting more ladylike. My husband started opening doors for me. In public people started treating me with more kindness and respect. I would never go back to wearing pants because I don't want to offend God, but while I'm wearing feminine clothing it's nice to reap the blessings :)
I'm enjoying your blog btw! A friend of mine directed me here. She said that your blog reminded her of me! After reading a few posts I took that as a very big compliment. I've loved everything I've read so far. Thank you for all of your posts. I have started reading again, from the beginning. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can learn and be encouraged by.
~Blessings!

Oops! forgot to also mention that like Michele I don't judge others in this. This is purely personal between me and God. It really doesn't matter to me what anyone else wears. Life is too short, and I have too many of my own issues to work on to worry about what anyone else is doing.

Dresses and skirts all the time... but it wasn't always so.
