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

Modest and Simple Knit Dress for girls

I have been having a wonderful experience sewing clothing for my girls, from SureFit Design's Children's Kit.  Once I've drafted the master pattern for my receipient, I can be as creative as I can with the patterns that I like.

Here is a very simple and modest dress with a high collar mock neckband, long sleeves, A-line skirt and gathers at the waist.  I chose a very fun fabric made of thermal knit from Fabric.com.  My daughter loves it very much as it is comfortable and enjoys wearing it for Shabbat.

Sewing gives me so much pleasure and I share my pleasures with my family and you.

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.
