For the longest time growing up I hated the fact that I couldn’t go into one store and find the PERFECT modest yet fashionable skirt. So, I told myself one day… “If I can’t find the skirts I need, than I will have to make my own”. My Grandma knew a lot about sewing, so I turned to her for help.  She taught me a lot of basic sewing techniques and how to sew skirts from patterns, but me still being at a young age, I didn’t take too much interest in it until I got a little older. Several years past and as I grew up, I began to see how Pentecostal woman would struggle like me to find nice, modest skirts. I remember while shopping for skirts I would walk up to what I thought was a skirt, but when I pulled it off the rack, to my disappointment, it turned out to be pants instead. I finally reached a point in my life where I got tired of always being disappointed. I was determined and desperate to succeed at something in my life. Once I got the money, I went out and bought myself a little sewing machine. I will admit I doubted myself that I could make anything worth wearing. But I kept at it, fixing my mistakes as I went along. If it weren’t for the help and guidance from my Grandma, and the support of my Mom, I probably would have given up at this point. The first skirt I ever made was for my job. I needed something that I could move around in but still be modest and fashionable at the same time.

Once I finally finished my very first skirt… I can’t even put it into words how proud I was of myself. I felt like I accomplished something worth fighting for. I’ll be honest, there were countless times I was VERY frustrated at myself and felt like giving up over and over again, but I had this HUGE desire within me that I couldn’t let go of. I eventually got better at sewing and as time went on I continued making my own skirts. I always had people from church complementing me; even random people in stores would walk up to me and tell me how much they loved my skirt.

I won’t lie; my heart still went out to the woman who still struggled to find modest skirts like I did. So, I began making skirts for people without charging them. As a kid I remembered my Mom always telling me, “You’re just like your Dad”, Curious I asked, “Why do you say that?” Her reply was, “Because you have such a giving heart no matter what the cost”. For as long as I can remember my family has been telling me that I need to go into business sewing skirts for people. Now I’m proud to say, I have a website called www.thegirlintheskirt.com and my desire is to sew for God in making modest skirts for woman who struggle to find them in this world we live in.

      Hey Sis Parrett,
      I’m so glad you stopped by to check out my website! Thank you for your kind words! I am so excited to help girls to be modest, yet fashionable at the same time.

      This is how you order…. if you go to the “Long & Short Of It” tab here on my website…. it will tell you exactly what steps to fallow to order. To briefly explain, what you do is you buy a pair of pants you really like that fit you in the weighst. Make SURE they are not too tight in the butt area. Then, deppending on what kind of skirt you are wanting (long or short) will determin how many pairs of pants you get. If you want long you need 2 pairs of pants, if you want short, I only need 1 pair of pants. To help keep the price down, I would start at a goodwill or a thrift store, sometimes you get lucky. Then you send me your payment along with your pants and the rest is up to me. For your convenience if you prefer not sending money through the mail, you can pay for it online right here on my website on the “Order Now” tab.

      I hope this imformation was helpful!
      Love ya sis!
      Christina
