Yes, You CAN Buy Modest Dresses for Girls

If you are familiar with me and this blog, you know that I have a heart for modesty. With four daughters in our home, I know that it can be a challenge to find decent clothing for girls. Prior to the maxi dress fad, it was extra difficult!

When I do find a resource for sweet, modest clothing for my girls, my husband and I take note. It may be a thrift store that consistently has what we’re looking for or a typical brick and mortar store. Whatever the type of store, it ends up being a place that we’re likely to frequent when new (or new-to-us) clothes are needed.

5 Things I Love About Joyfully Sewn Designs {and a $30 giveaway!}

Recently I found one of those places, and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am with Joyfully Sewn Designs! I have something special for just my readers coming up with JSD soon, so you can consider this your appetizer.

Today I’m teaming up with a few other bloggers to bring to you a fantastic giveaway from Joyfully Sewn Designs!

Sarah’s online shop is a wonderful resource for beautiful, modest clothing for young girls, and this week she’s giving away a $30 gift certificate to one of you!

(Pssst, you can use the promo code SUMMER to get free shipping on any order of at least $50! So even if you don’t win, here’s a freebie!)

The giveaway details are at the end of this post (scroll down if you just can’t wait!), but if you can handle a few moments of suspense before we get there, I want you to see five things that are so special about Joyfully Sewn Designs and the beautiful things Sarah creates for her customers!

1. Feminine Clothing

I just fell in love with this tiered peasant dress.  It just begs for a barefoot, summer time stroll!

It didn’t take me long while looking through Sarah’s store to realize that I pretty much loved every. single. thing. she made. I’m not exaggerating. My middle daughter will be getting a dress from Sarah’s store tomorrow for her fifth birthday, and it was so hard to choose just one!

My husband was so impressed when I showed him the dress that he wants to continue to support Sarah’s shop for more birthday and Christmas gifts. I believe he said “Wow, we need to get more of those!”

2. High Quality Work

Here's a close-up of the denim Prairie Peasant Skirt Sarah sells in her shop.  So pretty!

I do a little sewing from time to time. I’m not great, but I can get a decent job done.

However, Sarah sews her items like a pro, because she is. They feel sturdy and she clearly pays close attention to the details of her items.

3. Quick Shipping

This precious little dress makes me wish I had a baby girl to wear it!  ;)

Who likes slow shipping? Throw those hands up, friends! Wait. No?

No. Products always arrive in a timely manner from Joyfully Sewn Designs! The dress for my daughter (and you’ll see it soon!) was a custom item, and I asked her to make something extra that wasn’t even in her store. She was so good about emailing me to let me know how it was coming along, and it shipped just when she said it would.

4. Excellent Customer Service

Don't you just love the sweet little bows that come with the Red-and-White Apple Sun Dress?  Cute!

Need a specific size? Matching dresses? A bow or pair of bloomers for an outfit? Sarah offers wonderful and gracious customer service.

When I asked her about the additional item I wanted to go with my daughter’s dress, she made it happen, and I can’t wait to her my little girl giggle when she sees it!

5. Unique Products

Sarah's crisp, handmade bloomers (or pantaloons) are probably my favorite "accessory" from Joyfully Sewn Designs!  My girls wore these with most of their dresses when they were little!

Definitely worth noting is the fact that you can’t just walk into your local department store and buy clothes like these. They aren’t available. Where do you find hand-made, sturdy

But What About the Prices?

I just have to mention Sarah’s prices. Now I am all for single digit scores from the thrift store. But from time to time you need to buy something new and something that will last.

Handmade clothing can be pricey, but Sarah’s prices are extremely reasonable. I have seen similar items from other sellers at double the cost. In fact, I was really surprised by how reasonable her prices are when I first looked at her website! And after having an item in my hands, I can positively say that they are worth every penny, and then some.
