Far Above Rubies – Modest Clothing Review

I’d like to introduce you to a wonderful new modest clothing site I found: Far Above Rubies.

I have worn both my denim skirt AND my denim jumper literally beyond frayed edges, and Jewel and I are supposed to wear denim bottoms for our Keepers at Home club “uniform” to the meetings. So I ordered an A-line Cargo Skirt.

This elastic waist a-line skirt has cargo pockets on each side. It comes in twill or denim. 100 % cotton / poly cotton fabrics. Machine wash – tumble dry. Great for everyday wear. Comes in sizes XS through XL. Lengths are 34 or 37 inches. Also available in Plus and Girls Sizes.

Mine is a very cute denim pinstripe that doesn’t seem to be listed on the site anymore. (And might be pushing it a bit for the Keepers “uniform”, but so be it!) 37″ is my usual length, so their intended “long” skirt is perfect for me.

The charming and helpful proprietor, Ginny, assures me, however, that they can make any adjustments needed to the garment (within the possibilities of the design) – adding length, adding pockets (since you know I asked that!), etc. Although the website can give the impression of ready-to-wear, in-stock clothes, they are actually a family business doing things to order.

Apparently my measuring went awry, and the waist is still too big, so I need to tighten the elastic up a little bit before I can wear it. But I wanted to tell you how excited I am about the skirt, which is well-made and lovely.

Don’t forget – you’ll find Far Above Rubies, and many other great resources, listed on the Modest Clothing Links page!

    Elastic stretches during the insertion process. I have had the exact same problem with skirts I’ve ordered and made for myself and my girls. What starts out as the perfect amount of elastic ends up inches too big. Here’s my tip for you: When you do adjust your elastic, don’t close the casing until you know for sure it fits perfectly. I’ve got to redo mine because it still falls off me due to the weight of denim and the stretchiness of the elastic.

      Good thoughts, thank you!

      When I’ve taken in waists for Jewel and I before, I’ve always just left the casings open in case they needed to be adjusted again later! ;)
