MODEST SKIRTS FOR CATHOLIC WOMEN

  • My wife can turn ordinary blue jeans (you provide your jeans in your size) into knee-, calf- or ankle-length skirts. She adds contrasting or coordinating swatches of fabric and makes sure that these items are made to last. They are machine-washable, can come in hundreds of different styles, depending on the fabric you want added, and are extremely affordable, since YOU provide the jeans.

    My wife wears these skirts often, and she's 5'1" and not thin. She has a good friend who also wears them who is 5'11" and also not typically-framed.

    She has made them for women of various ages and body types. Again, since these are YOUR jeans, they turn into a skirt that is GUARANTEED to fit!

    You may contact her at momof3plb@gmail.com for more information.

    There are TWO different styles of custom skirts available:

    1) A denim "panel" skirt, where there are panels of fabric added at intervals to create the skirt (these look like denim items because the entire length of the skirt is in denim fabric)

    and

    2) A denim "curtain" skirt, where the "jeans" part ends and the entire rest of the length of the skirt is solid, patterned or patch-work fabric. If you wear a long blouse, shirt or sweater over this style skirt, it will not look AS MUCH like a denim skirt. The "jeans" part will be mostly to totally covered by the fall of your top.


    PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

    ** Your jeans will be PERMANENTLY ALTERED. They will no longer be pants. They will be cut up and modified into a skirt. Please bear in mind that they CANNOT BE RESTORED to "pants" status.

    ** The price you will be quoted when you inquire will include a FLAT rate for the work and a FLAT fee for the additional material that will be added. YOU pay to send us the jeans, WE pay to send the completed skirt(s) back.

    ** Since these are custom-made items, they are non-returnable for "I don't like the color" reasons. Returns are only accepted for repair of defects in workmanship. If you want to be sure you will be satisfied with the fabric color, please choose black or another solid color.

    When you order any "curtain" skirt in a PATTERNED OR PATCH-WORK fabric, we will email you a picture of the fabric section BEFORE the skirt is completed so that you can see what the fabric will look like. You'll have the opportunity to accept or modify the choice of pattern or patch-work before the skirt is completed.

    Of course, there will be other questions!

    MomOf3PLB@gmail.com for more information. We answer customer inquiries from 9 AM to 3 PM Monday through Saturday.

    We hope to hear from you soon!

    **PLEASE NOTE: OTHER TYPES OF PANTS, SUCH AS KHAKIS, ETC CAN BE TURNED INTO SKIRTS AS WELL. PLEASE CONTACT US AND TELL US WHAT KIND OF PANTS YOU HAVE; WE CAN TELL EASILY WHETHER THEY WOULD BE USABLE FOR CUSTOM SKIRTS.

  • Any before and after pictures?

    Of the garments and not people in them, thanks?
    Sincerely,

  • We're going to take some new pictures of the skirts ASAP.

    We had pictures, but they were of the items with people in them.

    I will post the pictures as soon as I can.

    I don't own any pants, but would like to see a photo of the jeans skirt.  Can you tell it was once pants?

  • Frances,

    No, you cannot tell that the skirts were once pants.

    The skirts have the jeans pockets in the front, and buyers have the option of keeping or removing the rear pockets. Many denim skirts sold these days also have pockets in the front or in the rear.

    When you see the pictures, you'll clearly see that you'd be wearing a SKIRT, and anyone would recognize it as such.

    These are NOT garments designed to look as much like pants as possible. They are garments designed to be able to re-purpose jeans so that women and girls who want nice-looking, modest feminine clothing don't have to hunt through over-priced imported junk at the store. They're also made out of the existing jeans material so some of the cost of sewing and finishing these garments is reduced. When my wife doesn't have to start from raw, unfinished fabric and use a pattern, there's less labor involved and more garments can be made in less time.

    Don't OWN any pants or jeans, you say? WELL... here's a GREAT IDEA!

    Go to your local thrift store/discount outlet/yard sale/whatever and get as many pairs in DIFFERENT SIZES as you can. If you own enough modest skirts and dresses for yourself, you can help us to help other women who don't.

    Simply send us the jeans (along with a donation to offset our expenses if you so desire and are able), and we'll turn them ALL into lovely skirts in various colors and sizes, then make them available for other women to be able to purchase. We will also be making DONATIONS of finished skirts to womens' shelters, St. Vincent De Paul stores, etc.

    This is a great way to be able to make modest, well-made, long-lasting skirts available so that EVERY LADY who wants to honor Our Lord in modesty can do so.

    WE MAKE GIRLS' SKIRTS AS WELL. ANY PAIR OF PANTS IN DURABLE FABRIC CAN BE TURNED INTO A MODEST AND PRETTY SKIRT FOR A LADY OF ANY AGE!

    It's also a great way to help our home-schooling family support itself, as 100% of the labor and shipping and receiving are done by US. There are no employees, there is no special facility, there's just us, our sewing machines and our labor of love.

    We don't buy new pants from stores, we don't purchase them wholesale, we simply re-use, re-design and re-purpose pants and jeans so that they are NO LONGER immodest and inappropriate for women and girls. We DON'T CONTRIBUTE AT ALL TO THE SALE OF JEANS OR OTHER PANTS MARKETED TO WOMEN ON THE RETAIL OR WHOLESALE LEVEL.

    Thanks for all the interest! Pictures are coming soon; please pray that we will receive lots of orders and/or donations of old pants so we can make a BIG impact on the way modern women see their clothing choices. We want to attack the modernist/feminist idea of androgynous and immodest clothing on every level:

    Making the right clothes available at the right price

    Making these items EXCLUSIVELY; we don't make, sell or customize pants AS PANTS.

    Making a public, visual statement to the world that if effort is required to be ladylike, effort shall be made. If the stores only care about profit, they can sell whatever they want. We will ONLY make clothes that modest Christian ladies and girls can wear proudly.

    Pray for us!
