Frumpy clothes?

The other day, I received this comment, "I like how your homemade clothes are not frumpy. Seems that it can be easy to make a homemade dress look frumpy...if you know what I mean."

That is one thing that we have desired not to wear is frumpy, wrinkled, faded clothing. Not only does it have an appearance of disorderliness, but it can also turn people away when it looks like you just "came from the barn." Don't get me wrong, there is a time and place to wear dirty, faded demin, as I have a denim jumper that I wear a lot for working, cleaning, etc and as far as the statement, "came from the barn" -- I love animals and old barns! But the Bible does say that all things should be done decently and in order (see 1 Cor. 14:40) and though it isn't talking about clothing, I do believe that we could definately apply this verse to what our appearance looks like!
