Where to find modest girl clothe

post #1 of 100
Thread Starter 
I am looking for cute and modest little girl clothes sites. So much of the clothes her size are getting way to mature in theme and design....

She wears 18 months in the waist and 3t in length... I am not a seamstress so the cloth need to be pre sewn...

I have found this "movement" of modest clothes that look like what the duggar children (18 and counting, early shows) or what the texas compound women wear Like they walked out of the early 1900's.That is not what I want .I guess jut cute dresses with out characters and with modest cuts....bloomers and slips. Anyone know of a site like that? clasic design I think is the term

thanks mama!

There are modest clothing, I grew up LDS and we are encouraged not to wear tank tops, short shorts or tshirts that showed your belly. My mom was a big fan of LLBean and Lands End.

Also, 18M? Girls are dressing worse and worse earlier and earlier

Sorry I will change my wording....

18 month clothing with tank top and short skirts that dont even hit little girl knee. two peice bathing suits....not something I want my daughter to wear.

I don't put my daughter in clothes that mimick adult clothes, nor does she look like she just stepped out of Little House on the Prairie.

Try Hannah Anderson for ideas. I find a lot of DDs clothes at Target. Some has characters or phrases written on it, but most of their clothes are solids, stripes, bright fun colors and patterns. DD is 2.5 now and in 4T clothes. It hasn't been hard to find her dresses with sleeves and more modest neck lines, long enough to hit mid-calf, etc.

I have a boy so I was shocked when I went Christmas shopping for a cousin this year. She likes skirts. I thought no problem. That was until I went in three different trendy kid stores and all the skirts were minis! I finally went to Kohl's and found a ton of cute skirts that were at or below the knee. That's my suggestion. You can shop online with them, but really I just can't buy kid clothes online. You just never know how it's going to fit until it's in your hands. IMO

This is a big problem for me as well. The clothes for women and girls here in Italy tend to be even more suggestive than in the U.S. I had a very hard time finding a one piece bathing suit. I've even seen thongs for little girls! It is so upsetting. Why do people want to dress little girls up that way?

Check out some of the handmade clothes on Etsy:

Foo Foo and More

Twigs Boutique, of Provo, UT
Palm Tree Princess

I am sure there's a ton more, these are just a few examples. You also support WAHM, made-in-America clothes if you are buying from the maker directly.

I feel like I've dodged a bullet having a son! All I have to worry about is his butt hanging out over his jeans, but I'm sure that won't be trendy once he's old enough to have a butt!

Personally, I am a big fan of The Children's Place. They're clothes are really colorful with bold prints. They are a bit on the trendy-side, but I don't think they're too mature-looking for my 20 mo. old. The dresses are right at knee-length on Lily. There skirts might be a bit shorter, but most are skorts. Much of their stuff reminds me of things I wore as a child in late 70s and early 80s. The other thing I like about them is that the prices aren't too high and they have good sales and offer coupons.

We are big HA fans at my house. I like my girls to look like little girls, and their dresses are cute and girlish. I shop the sales, e-bay, I could never afford to pay full price, and the best part is that once the girls reach 2 or so, I can always get at least 2 years of wear out of one dress for the same child. Then they are still in excellent condition for the next child.

We really love Hanna Andersson, Janie and Jack (really expensive but awesome sale rack and often found on ebay) and Tea Collection. All seem really nice and classic for boy or girl. I don't want my girl looking like she is going to night club, nor do I want my 2 year old boy looking like a skate punk.

I love dresses, and since most of them have short skirts, I just put leggings or baby-sweats under them. It sounds tacky when just say it like that but it looks really cute.

I have the same problem. Where we are all the shirts are sleeveless or spaghetti straps and the skirts/shorts are super short. I end up buying adjustable waist pants 4 sizes to big so they are long enough then it looks weird.
I don't understand why people want to dress their kids inappropriately either.
