Becky, I read your comment on Sarah's and Leah's blog "As Lilies Sewing" that you have recently become skirts and dresses only. I understand how you could need some encouragement in that area - there was no one around me either when I started!

We recently had a Week in Feminine Dress (the 'we' being several Christian bloggers). It was great fun and great encouragement to see ladies going about their daily lives in dresses or skirts. The majority who participate are 'dresses/skirts' only.

Just wanted to pass that along in case you wanted surf around a bit and look the pics. You will probably find a bunch by just Googling Week in Feminine Dress.
