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

Swim Dress/Skirt, short or long?

In the process of making of modest swim dresses, I had to do an experiment. I needed to know which lengths of swim skirts will be modest -- short or long?  In the experiment I conducted with plastic dolls, dressed with swim fabric in different length skirts, I have found that the longer the skirt, the less it will float up, and so, it will be more modest.

Two little buddies in pool, one with short skirt, one with longer
Oops, the shorter the skirt, the more it "floats" up in the water
Beware of short swim skirts 
The longer skirt is more modest and does not float up in water
Be modest, even under water.

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.
