Friends - This is an old (couple year old) post on the many aspects (including some history) of Plain dress that is interesting to read and I'm sure will be new reading material to some. I found it a refreshing and insightful reminder of why we do or do not dress plain:

Thank you, Barb. I went to the home page of michiganquakers.org and was unable to find this excellent essay. I also note that the essay has links to another page with several other essays on "Plain":

 Thank you for bringing it to our attention. Lots of reading ahead for me. :)

 

Paula - Thanks for posting that link as well. For some unknown reason michiganquakers has updated their website and dropped the link to this excellent and valuable material. Same has happened to the OYM site. If anyone could rectify this it would be great. All this good reading is floating unattached in cyberspace....oh dear. It may be a task for some enterprising Friend to link it all together again somewhere.
