Saturday I went to the thrift store because Daughter needed a new pair of pants. One pair of her school pants had died a very untimely death over a ballet move that those pants weren’t designed for. Thank goodness for the uniform bank at school. But that is a story for another day.
At the store I found pants. And, to my great surprise, a pair of dress shoes that Young Son desperately needed. He is a hard size to fit.
On my way out, this dress caught my eye.
Eeeep! It is wonderful! But, a little (make that a lot) low in the front.
But, it is only $3.50. And a great color. And the right size.
Do we compromise?
Of course not. We can sew. We can fix this.
Based on a tutorial for a Faux Cami from the Moda Bake Shop, I fashioned Daughter a little layered piece for under the dress.
Yes, much better.
And she is happy! And can wear it without having to worry.
That is one of the points of modesty–to be comfortable in your own skin and comfortable in your clothes. Important at any price.
