Modest Dress Through The Week – Tuesday

Last evening was really hectic for me, but a joyful hectic! I received a kombucha mushroom in the mail from this dear blogging lady. So I bustled about, trying to set up a brewing jar for my new exotic pet.

Jeff took this picture just before I changed into my jammies for the night. This is my favorite jumper that I sewed. The pattern is from Common Sense Patterns, the Empire Waist version. My headcovering (which is hidden) is from She Maketh Herself Coverings, the Dutch Cap style. Close up below:


I use white clippies now from Prayer Coverings.

And how could I forget my adorable brown Mary Janes? They were a Wal-Mart special 3 years ago…and the straps have held up!

Tonight will also be a busy one; we are going to Bible Study. Maybe the camera will tag along!

    If you don’t mind an opinion, I think you look a bit more natural when a little band of hair shows between your forehead and your covering, the way it does in this picture and doesn’t in the last two you’d posted.

    I love your outfit! It’s so spring and jumps out with the color.

    Hi Anna,
    THought I would share something. My brother in law has Aspergers.
    He has never been officially diagnosed , and no one helped him out, hence he has no idea himself. He has no social skills, so is very difficult to spend time with.
    Anyway, I was wondering what you think of the theory of vaccines in relation to Autism.
    Reason I ask, is because in the Amish community, there is only 2 or 3 cases, and these children were adopted by into the Amish, hence they are the only Amish that have had vaccinations.
    Just curious what you think.

    Hi Paula,

    I had not heard that trend (of no autism) in the Amish community before. It might be worthy of study. However, because they tend to be a “closed-loop” genetically speaking, this might account for the lack. They are also very protective of their disabled and care for them at home. Epidemiologists might not be aware of the autism incidence because it is simply not diagnosed as much. Plus, because of the protectiveness and closed nature of their communities, a little oddity is acceptable to an extent.

    So, that said, I do not see how vaccines “cause” autism because there were autistics before vaccines and in populations that were not vaccinated. I believe autism is a set of neuro-biological traits. Some have more of the traits (more “severe cases”) and some have less.

    If you have more questions, I can e-mail you privately.

    Thanks for the kudos, ladies! The jumper is actually a darker pumpkin color with a leaf print on it. The internet made it pop out in bright orange. 🙂

    Hi Anna, Thanks for your reply
    You may email me if you like.
    Here is a link that shows its not just the unvaccinated Amish that do not have it.
    There is a fair amount of research out there .
