modest or ridiculous (or both)

Some of her modest outfits I actually find cute, but this is just stupid imo, how does wearing a short sleeve top under this "already modest dress (imo)" make it modest? It looks ridiculous to me, what's wrong with just the dress? :wtf:

It looks like it eliminates the chance for the pervy pastor to get a glance at the side of her bra.

Other than that, the ugly shirt is there just to say "IM MORE MODEST THAN YOU,WHORE."

Which is redundant, because the weirdly styled not-really-a-headcovering (it shows way too much hair) already screams it.

I did not notice the shirt as I was being blinded by the print. Okay to be fair the print is not horrible. Had the dress been a short "flouncy" dress with tank sleeves the print may not be bad. However, there is just SO MUCH bright print because it is so long. Just my opinion.

It covers her entire shoulder, that's how.

Doesn't look ridiculous to me. It's not really my style, but it's cute.

wow, who puts a centre seam on the front of a dress they're making from such a loudly patterned dress without pattern matching? in fact, who puts a centre seam on the front of ANY dress?

Why not just add little sleeves to it if you must? Or at the very least, use a top that matched, like maybe in that dark blue color at the neckline. And I am not the best seamstress, but I can NOT with that center front seam. Ugh.

It seems like for a lot of Christians headcoverings aren't really about modesty, but just about having something on your head. It's a symbol of authority, and the Bible just says it's necessary during prayer and prophesy (an aside--I think a lot of fundies miss the implication here that women were praying and prophesying in church). I think the logic is that since you should be praying continually, you should be covering continually as well.

Back to the original topic, that really isn't a great look. It seems weird to have the t-shirt underneath when it barely covers any more than the dress, but I guess it does cover her shoulder a bit more.

I'll admit to doing the t-shirt under a dress look as a teen. We weren't really supposed to show shoulders in church and the like, so if you wanted to wear a lot of dresses you had to have that shirt underneath. (My parents actually didn't care, but I personally was uncomfortable baring my shoulders.)

Hopefully this is one of her thrift shop finds?? Surely she wouldn't make herself a dress that needed more fabric to be modest. She's a pretty decent seamstress, actually; it's odd to me that she'd settle for clothing that's under her standards and then need to add stuff like this to it.

Editing to add: I did my own homework and see that she paid $1 for it at the charity shop. That's a lot of dress for a dollar, so why not? If I were her, I'd take a few inches off the bottom, use the fabric for mini-sleeves like this shirt is doing, and wear it 'til it falls apart.

The color is off, but I've done the little t under a dress thing. It keeps shoulders covered, and prevents any view of bra straps or unshaved pits or that weird bit of fat just in front of the pits.

Three years ago I thought skinny jeans were the most ridiculous thing on the planet, I swore they didn't look good on anyone, and I had no idea why anyone would ever think they were a good idea. I now own three pairs of skinny jeans. So yeah... I try not to judge other's fashion choices too harshly. :P

Exactly!! The print is bloody awful too!

The center seam is weird (is it backwards, maybe?), and I'm not into the cut of the dress at all. But I don't think the tee is too off -- I have a halter sundress that I wear a tee with because I'm a 36h and no strapless in the world can hold these things up. But the print? Oh heck yes. I'd wear the hell out of that print. It's delightfully loud and colorful.

I like the fabric and would wear it a heartbeat, even in a maxi-dress like she's got on. I am nothing if not tacky.

But I don't know why she chose to layer this dress with a t-shirt. Why not pair it with a short-sleeved jacket in either the same fabric or in a matching solid color? That way she's got the neckline covered and roaming eyes can't see her delicate lady under thingies.

The way she's wearing it here, it's as if she's announcing "I am layering this dress that many women would wear just as it is BECAUSE I AM MODEST," which isn't exactly, you know, modest. :shrug:

I find the center seem off-putting. I would suggest wearing a bolaro over the dress instead of a tee-shirt underneath. That would make it modest without screaming "Look at me, I'm modest!"

Is it a head covering or just a wide headband?

Where is this picture from?

Exactly this. I've made dresses like hers before, and when I saw the pic, modest or ridiculous didn't even register. It was the fact that if the center seam belonged anywhere, it should have been on the back if the print was going to be so bright, loud and irregular.

That's often my gut reaction with fundie sewing, though - a lot of the fundie fashions the pop up here on FJ are oddly crafted.

Heck, Sustainable Unicorn AKA Timothy from this season of Project Runway could do better than that. He dumpster dives for some of his fabric. At most, he got the cast off remnants at the fabric shop. At Mood, he went were no contestant had ever gone before -into the back room where they kept the scraps of cloth. In the auditions, he brought some fabric that he had hand woven out of old cassette tape. It was gorgeous! Now if only a) he turned out some good garments during the competition and b) if he'd stop being such a Sustainable Prick.

It looks like a modest swimsuit with an aquarium theme which mutated into a dress. The mismatched front seam just makes it worse.

Excuse me if this is a dumb question but why doesn't she just wear a short sweater or shawl over the dress instead of wearing the T-Shirt? It would still cover her shoulders and might look less tacky in my opinion.

YES!! I was so happy that they finally tied the knot last week. Not only that, they got married at Emmett McCarthy's shop. Emmett is one of my all-time favorites on PR.

I'm forever grateful that they finally had the legal go-ahead to tie the knot... WTG New York!!

Poor Olivia... she would pass out if she knew her muumuu was being discussed on a thread high-fiving equal marriage rights.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.
