I finally went and purchased this swimwear pattern from BiblicalWomanhood.com (not affiliated, just sharing the link). There are several more pictures on the testimonials page. I’ve been thinking about buying one since I first saw it last summer (edit: this is the pattern I saw previously: Swimwear Solutions -depending on the look/make of the other, I may get this one in *my* size). AJ had been asking me for a swim dress, so now she’ll finally have one!
This morning, I came across The Modesty Survey (as described in this blog entry). I wish someone had taken the time to explain that how a woman or girl dresses is a powerful influence on men, and especially to emphasize the positive influence of dressing modestly.. and to have been an influence that I greatly cared for and respected in the years preceeding and leading into my own physical maturation! I only hope that I can set a good example for my own 3 girls and remember to take the time to explain it to them as they grow!
