Mishlei (Proverbs) 31:22,24

כב מַרְבַדִּים עָשְׂתָה-לָּהּ שֵׁשׁ וְאַרְגָּמָן לְבוּשָׁהּ
כד סָדִין עָשְׂתָה וַתִּמְכֹּר
She made for herself pleasant-looking bed covers; she also made herself white (linen) and purple garments to wear
She manufactured robes and sold them

Jewish Halachic Guidelines for Slips

When the dress or skirt is translucent (see through), here are a few solutions to make it opaque:
  1. Line the dress or skirt with a material that makes it opaque
  2. Wear a suitable slip (full length for dress, and half length for skirt)
The length of the slip should be a couple of inches shorter than the garment, and not shorter, otherwise a sudden movement that lifts up the garment will expose the knees, either indirectly via sunlight through the outer garment, or directly.

The slip should not be exposed from the outer garment, therefore wrap skirts or skirts with slits are not kosher to wear.

Training Girls in Dressmaking

In our times, it is highly commendable to train girls in the art of dressmaking and general sewing. Lessons should be given on this subject in schools, and if necessary, also in seminaries.

If the girl becomes really expert, she will even be able to make garments for herself, and later on, when married also for her daughters. Also, she could take up dressmaking as a profession.
