Can you explain which verses point you to a skirt only, please?. I was thinking you mean the one about not cross dressing? You’ve said in one of your vids that it wasn’t the obvious verses, so I’d love you to tell me please. Back in biblical context didn’t both men and women wear long robes and tunics? Different styles but both in long robes. I agree about modesty, but loose trousers, that don’t define everything you’ve got ( both sexes!) feel ok to me. I have a tiered summer skirt and yes, they do fell lovely, the way they kick out! Thanks for your videos, great work!

No, men and women did not wear the same thing, this is a misconception brought on by images given to us through movies and such. There are several scriptures that instruct the men/priests in wearing breeches (pants): (Exodus 28:42-43) "And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach: {43} And they shall be upon Aaron, and upon his sons, when they come in unto the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they come near unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not iniquity, and die: it shall be a statute for ever unto him and his seed after him." Of course many would argue this was only for the Levitical priests but I have seen that argument about a lot of things (no tatooes, not practicing witchcraft, et cetera) so many "believers" then say it is ok for them to do the opposite since they are not priests. Yes, there really are "christians" that practice witchcraft and that is the excuse they use. As far as women wearing only skirts, I do not believe there is a scripture specifically on that but when you put everything together through the Bible when it speaks of dress for both men and women and modesty, we know that attire for a lady should cover her well but also be lovely. Proverbs 31:22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. On a side note, men were also instructed to be modest, not just the women, as can be seen in the previous verse I listed. When talking about men vs women's apparel, regardless of what was worn in Bible times, skirts and dresses in our culture are associated with femininity. However, this is not just about not wearing the apparel of a man, it is about modesty and for me, the long full skirts are the most modest attire because of my build. (1 Timothy 2:9-10) "In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; {10} But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works." When doing a search on the word "apparel" in the Bible it is always associated with beauty and royalty but not necessarily being gaudy or ostentatious. This would lead me to believe we are also to strive to look lovely and lady like without trying to attract attention. So again, for me that is wearing long skirts that I can also work and move in. Pretty yet functional :)

I just love your skirts I have made 2 and fixing to make one like this. As I only wear skirts too, and I can do anything in them.
Michelle's Homemade (5 months ago)
Rain Country yes I made one of those also, I'm 5ft 9in so I did mine in 11 in squares so it was long enough
Rain Country (5 months ago)
Very good :D I also have videos showing how to make the patchwork design ones similar to this. One shows the basics on size squares I use and a more recent one shows how I now lay out the squares for each tier to prevent overlapping of colors and prints.Simply search "patchwork skirt" on the little search bar of my main channel page :)

Your skirts are great. I have just started sewing on my own and i am definitely going to try it. I am also a Christian.
Carrie Rangel (7 months ago)
I just discovered you yesterday and I am soaking up your knowledge! The Lord has really laid modesty on my heart lately and now I am attempting to make my own clothes. Thank you for your help!
Rain Country (7 months ago)
Welcome! That is great you are going to be making your own clothes. When the Lord started working on me, I realized I was just going to have to do that myself as well because it is down right impossible to find modest clothing anywhere these days so I started designing my own skirts to suit me and now am back to making my own tops as well like I used to do over 30 years ago :)

I think the only thing I would add would be a lining. Attach a lining to the waste so that there is no see thru. As an traditional Catholic I want to wear my skirts to mass and not have any see thru when the sun hits the fabric. I don't want to wear nylon as it sticks to my skin! Cotton or linen would be my choice.
Barbara Rickman (7 months ago)
Ah! I am a novice seamstress! That is excellent information. Got a new counterbalance loom; the kind that folks have used for centuries to weave fabric. I am currently hand spinning all of my cotton stash. Some of it I bought from a gentleman in Alabama who retired from teaching and began growing organic cotton on his property. I have some cotton that I grew myself. And I have some that came from a commercial cotton grower in Texas. All in all...just about 3 or 4 pounds of raw cotton! As soon as it is all hand carded, I will spin it up and get it on my loom. NO MORE CHINESE COTTON for me. Saw how it comes from overseas at my last job and..that pretty much did it for me.
Rain Country (8 months ago)
Trust me, these skirts are so full, there is no need for a lining and also because of the amount of fabric, they are plenty heavy enough.
Sophie's Choice (8 months ago)
I'm a new subbie. Just wanted to say that I have been wearing skirts and dresses only for 24 years now. I would never even consider going back to pants. With leggings (wool please) and such I am much warmer in winter than I ever was in pants. Some think I'm an oddball for climbing ladders, painting, and doing everything else in a skirt, but as you said, women did it for centuries. It's really only since the late '50's that pants became more the norm for women. Up to then, it was skirts and dresses only. Men respect me more than they did when I looked like everybody else. I also do not cut my hair. I believe that God wants women to look like women with appropriate, modest clothing and long hair. When a woman who is dressed appropriately walks down the street, no one wonders if she is a man, or a woman. They know. And when she is wearing modest clothing with long hair, they assume she serves the Lord. What more could a woman ask for than to be known as HIS just by looking at her? What a blessing!!!! Thank you for stepping out and showing women how to make their own skirts and such.

Hi Heidi, Thank you for sharing this. I loved what you said toward the end of the video. I think you are so pretty and feminine. Thank you for bringing this traditional way of dressing back!! I am so happy that you did decide to do a YouTube channel!! I have thought about starting one and will pray about it. For the last 10 years or so I have - from time to time - taught traditional cooking in my home kitchen to young mothers. (Primarily recipes and techniques from Sally Fallon’s book Nourishing Traditions.). It’s so much fun and I love when they bring their nursing babies. They have told me I should film my lessons. We’ll see what the good Lord has in store for me. But I want to say that your videos are excellent. You have such a wonderful demeanor and relaxed style. And I am learning SO much from you!! Thank you again for all you share!! Love, Mary ❤️😘❤️
Rain Country (8 months ago)
This means a lot to me Mary and I so very much appreciate the time you take to encourage me. I do not always get it all right, I sometimes forget things I meant to say or say things wrong and then have to go back and correct them but it is refreshing that there are those who are learning right along with me and get that :D

So on the tiers you never know how long each tier will be until you finish that tier?? Because it's based on how much you gather that particular time? What do you use for your ties? Like on the brown one & this blue one? The way you do your drawstring casing makes perfect sense to me.
Edie Boudreau (9 months ago)
Rain Country thank you very much!!! This is EXACTLY what I was asking about- both ways. Actually very ingenious to crochet & attach to elastic for those "I ate too much Thanksgiving meal days". Or monthly bloating. Now i understand. Maybe in one of you "this-n-that" segments you could just show one of those ties you crochet-sew up close? Just for grins??
Rain Country (9 months ago)
I am apparently not communicating well either, I make the drawstring by crocheting three strands of yarn together - I make it in two parts and attach each part to the ends of about a 10" piece of elastic. The elastic piece sits at the very back of the skirt to give flex while the drawstring allows for easy adjusting. As far as the tiers, yes, it can be guess work as to how much fabric you need. On the patchwork skirts it is a bit more easy to find out but it takes MORE gathering as each tier is exactly twice as long as the tier before it. The solid fabric ones I do not gather as much.
Edie Boudreau (9 months ago)
Rain Country - umm. I'm not communicating this very well. What are you using for the tie? Rope. Drapery string. Drape tiebacks with knots??? Not interested in elastic.
Rain Country (9 months ago)
I believe I show how I make the elastic drawstring waist I use in my patchwork skirt video which came long after this one but do not remember when I made that one.
Trudy Cash (9 months ago)
wanted to ask how you do the tying of the skirt on I am loosing weight and elastic is quickly getting too loose. So wanting to make it as I loose weight it to be really adjustable.

Years ago I bought several skirt and apron patterns from Sense and Sensibility Patterns. They carried alot of good "old fashioned" patterns. The Edwardian Apron Pattern is still a favorite today! Another was from Folkwear #209, a walking skirt. Butterick B4570, part of the Making History line, is an old 1800's dress to cut down to skirt. It also has an apron, bloomers, and bonnet patterns included. Many of these patterns are on Etsy, EBay and Amazon, etc. Happy sewing!
Rain Country (1 year ago)
I might look them up just to see what they look like but I haven't used a pattern for anything in about 30 years, I just get an idea of the look I want then start cutting. I am currently designing a "bra" of sorts that is comfortable but modest. I taught Ballet (and a bit of other forms of dance) for 27 years and made most of the costumes for the recitals. It was the same thing there, I just drew up an image of how I wanted the costumes to look, then threw them together :)
Patty- A Pioneer Soul (1 year ago)
My heart to wants to dress like a woman and I enjoy wearing longer skirts. They are modest as scripture commands and so comfortable. I plan on trying to make your skirts. I'll probably fail with my first try, but that is how we learn. Bless you for sharing.

Your apron looks like it part of the dress, I love it! You should make one that has a apron bib on the top.

I am reminded of the days when I wore nothing but dresses and occasionally skirts. I wore them for 20 yrs. We lived in the mountains and our garden was in the front yard. In my mind was always the struggle of what people would think of me and how foolish I was to wear dresses in the garden, so when I saw someone coming I would squat down, thus they wouldn't see me, or so I thought. Finally, one day I took off the dresses and went to wearing pants only. I hated the dresses and knew I had a mind problem, because most people don't even thinking that at all. They could care less. I put the issue before God and told Him it was pants for me until He changed my thinking. About 15 yrs. has passed by and finally He was able to take all that ugliness from me, so I started wearing them again, about 2 months ago. It feels mighty fine to be free from the wrong thinking that plagued me so, at least in that one area anyway. I am happy to have these videos you provide, thanks again for them.
Thank you for sharing your time and talent with others. It is very easy to follow your instructions. God bless.

Laila Garrett (1 year ago)
I haven't worn pants in yrs. I love your skirts! when I wear a skirt and need to go up a lot of steps or climbing up and down a step stool I will take a section of my skirt at the sides and tuck into the waistband or grab the back and bring it thru my legs and make a kind of baggy pant look :)
Rain Country (1 year ago)
I have tried that but for some reason it does not work for me, though it is a great idea. Since my skirts are so full, I usually just throw one side over my arm when going up ladders and such.
Bitty Boo Brown (1 year ago)

Simply Christal (1 year ago)
When you say make little clips, do you mean you were cutting little "v" shape notches? I couldn't see your edges very well and I've never made a rag style quilt. I just wanted to clarify because I've really been wanting to try my hand at this but I'm definitely no seamstress. 😃
Rain Country (1 year ago)
Just little straight snips, not a notch. I do not worry about placing them in any set distance apart, I just snip snip snip - some are closer together than others but it really does not matter. Hope that helps!
Susan T (1 year ago)
Your deck looks beautiful with all the plants. :)
We've been skirt wearers for years. I agree with your wisdom. Especially with not looking frumpy, just say no to sweat pants. Also, skirts are SO COMFY! Thanks for this video. You are beautiful.

I love your channel and style...thanks so much for sharing your numerous talents! You're such an inspiration. Found about you from Stacy & Doug's channel.
Rain Country (1 year ago)
Thank you! :D
I LOVE this!!! Yes! The Lord told me the same about skirts. Love that you recycle sheets! Me too! AND love that you sew your own way. Just going your channel and will be an avid follower! You're my kind of gal! I'm a Christian wife, mother, homesteader, entrepreneur, and did home school. We do everything in our own. I was just given an old Singer treadle machine and have no knowledge of how to treadle, but have always dreamed of it. I went looking for videos about using it and found yours. Thank you so much for the information. I just can't get the nack of the treadle but will keep trying.
Yes! Keeping the machine oiled seems extremely important. I told my husband, it feels like learning an instrument or learning to dance with a partner (I also used to be a dance teacher.) I surely get a leg workout! You have so inspired me to enjoy my projects and not worry about perfection that I already completed a jean purse and am excitedly about to make a frontier skirt out of a sheet. I always loved those shirts and wore them all the time, but didn't really know how to make them. We used to wear them when performing character dance with a ballet company I once danced with. I really thank you for sharing this. I will be so excited to once again wear these skirts.
Rain Country (1 year ago)
So glad I can be of help, yes, it is a matter of finding the rhythm and getting the muscle memory down :)
LindyTN (1 year ago)
These skirts are cool in summer and if you wear winter leggings and boots under them in winter, they are warm. But I just cannot take them working around outside the farm. So impractical and risky. The animals get a hold of them, they get caught on everything and get torn. Around machinery and fires, they are really risky.  ATVs are a big no, no. lolThe wind blows them and they get drug through water and mud. But out and about and house work, as long as it does not incolve fires in the fore place, I love them.
loboalamo (1 year ago)
I have pulled the back of my skirt through/between my legs and tucked it at the waist. My skirts have made wonderful ways of hauling produce, eggs, feed and whatnot. And they clean up pretty good for just those skirts you wear around the farm. But pants do offer more freedom when I have to do a man's work, or climb in and out of silos and graineries. Skirts are great for the tractor and i can get some sun on my legs.
LindyTN (1 year ago)
Yes, there is something to be said for adapting to what you need or want to do. My daughter is a dancer and certified dance teacher(ballet, being her favorite), so I know what you mean. It may have a lot to do with coordination. Is their any group of people with more strength and coordination, than dancers? I don't think so. Maybe as much, but certainly not more. I am picturing myself in one of those skirts on ladders, climbing over fences, riding the 4 wheeler and mounting a horse. The only way I can think of to adapt to it, well, it would not be modest, that is for sure. LOL (Maybe we need a video on those challenges) But, I do love your skirts. Do you make them and sell them?
Rain Country (1 year ago)
I understand, people have to find what works for them. Though it has taken practice, I have made them work for me, I have been hiking through thick brush and up and down steep embankments, I do all my gardening in them, including spreading manure, climbing up and down ladders, and much more. When we finally get our chickens, I will continue to wear them when I care for them. There are tricks to it but it can be done for those who prefer this style but again, one has to choose what is best for them. I have been a dancer all my life, taught Ballet for 27 years and I am a martial artist. I have learned how to move in skirts of all sorts and loose fitting pants and it is what I am most comfortable with. I know a lot of ladies that work all day in jeans and that is something I cannot fathom - even as a teen, though I wore jeans from time to time, they were not something I could ever wear when working hard and being active. Just my personal preference.
Everyday Rosalez (1 year ago)
You do beautiful work! I haven't sewn since junior high and am now age 37. I just bought myself and my two daughters sewing machines for Christmas, so I'm going to endeavor to teach them and see how much I remember. I'm honestly nervous, but hope we can just have fun with it and create lots of beautiful things. Even more important will be the memories and skills they'll have the rest of their lives! I heard of you on Doug and Stacy's channel, and saw her beautiful skirts you made.

Nina R. Hey Nina, I just read ur post about the skirts possibly not flattering you fluffy self 😉, I was at one time 509lbs, now I float all around 200 soo sista, I understand "Livin Fluffy" !!!!! Now, this is important, your body type, my shape is the shape of a VERY HEALTH PEAR!!! I am WIDE AS A HOUSE BUT I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO, DID I SAY NO, I REALLY MEAN , NO, NO, I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO BUTT!!!!!!! Unlike my sisters who are bubbles, I am wide, but flat butted!!! Heidi's big circle skirts looked very flattering on me so ..... My niece has the shape of a rectangle (or a Barrel ) and this skirt does NOT PARTICULARLY FLATTER HER AT ALL, just thought I would let you know. The skirt seems to work well with the other body types as well!!!! Take Care Nina, May GOD WALK WITH YOU DAILY!!!!!!

LindyTN (1 year ago)
It is a fun style. I have a few of the broom stick kind of skirts that I like a lot. But they are a lot of material to deal with. I think the peasant style and just the A-line kind of style is easier to manage. I really like one of the ones you made for Stacey (Doug and Stacy) I like the colors and the patchwork style.
BlueGrassBound (2 years ago)
Rain Country Homestead I love that you are posting these. I was wishing I had saved that skirt so I could copy it. I literally wore it out. 💙

This style is fun and so comfortable. Pretty much the only style I wear any more - though most I put the seams on the inside.

Your skirts are beautiful, but not much on wearing them any longer BUT I do wear aprons all the time, and I love your style of aprons, I can not function with out my aprons. You can just not buy them like we use to make them years past. I am breathing in and waiting till you post your video, LOL. Lots of blessings too you dear.
Teresa Dean (2 years ago)
OH please do, I just love your aprons, I am not sure if any still wear them but I do, never with out mine. I am only down to two, and yes they are quite old. Mine are waist aprons, I like your full apron cause it has the pockets and I use the strings that tie in the back around my waist to fold my hand towel on so I have it to wipe my wet hands, I was my hands quite often when I am cooking, Yea I am a Clean cook, so I was told., not doing it right it you don't make a mess. LOL. I wished our youngen's could have gone to a school like I went, we had all those home econ. classes cooking, sewing, cleaning, and wood working,, welding, brick laying, sheet metal, we had a great all around skill set.

Why not finish the edge with a zig zag stitch?

Because I did not want that look on the outside edges, however, that is exactly what I do when I leave the raw edges on the inside as shown in my more recent video with the sewing tip

I kept meaning to check out one of your videos after seeing others mention your dresses on the Homesteading Network,  but kept forgetting!   Look what I've been missing!  You have so many interesting sounding videos that I wasn't sure where to start.  Looking forward to watching a few at a time.  Glad I looked into your site!  Love your pioneer dress!

The more I wear them, the more I learn to work in them in all I do: stacking firewood, hauling water, working in the garden, and so on. It can be tricky at first but I find them much easier to move in than jeans. So, whatever works for each person :D

use the fabrics you have ☺flannel would be great gray is fine too I tend to where what I make and eat 😅I am so excited! Your skirts are beautiful and would be perfect for our very cold winters. Please do not go out of your way☺

Just found your facebook message, I will keep in contact with you through there!

I will take a photo of the grey and brown flannels I have and I can send it to you if email me at [email protected] The flannel I have is brand new fabric and I am planning on ordering more black cotton sheets anyway. That will make three if you like the flannel colors

I have 3 of those style skirts but from Walmart. I do own a sewing machine but I haven't sown since Jr high. so I forgot how to thread it. thank you again for your inspiration. I'm going to try to find some sheets to make one of these. oh in the winter time do you where anything under them or just make a heavier skirt?
Rain Country (2 years ago)
Yes, I wear leggings under pretty much year round but loose shorts on hot days~which we get few of
Tee Teresa Flory (2 years ago)
would anyone here be willing to make 3 or 4, I cannot find Hiedis style anywhere and I love helping my youtube friends 😊💜

I would need to add some for shipping. Paypal works and I do have the email for that on my about page. However, give me time to see what I have, I am pretty sure I will need to buy more fabric. I do have a rustic brown flannel if you think you would be interested in that. Flannel skirts are SO comfortable, especially in winter, I made one for myself and will be making another. I also have a grey flannel but may not be dark enough.

Awesome where do I go to pay for them? Black, Brown Dark Blue. Elastic would be nice my wieght goes up and down lol
Rain Country (2 years ago)
I do make them to sell...usually I barter. I charge $45 each. I put more time into the ones i make for others and i would add elastic if desired

They'd be great for Jo but I do all the heavy lifting and building. They'd be dangerous around the saws and such, and I never know what's going to happen next around here. Plus, I've always loved jeans!
Rain Country (2 years ago)
Yeah, I get that :)
Tee Teresa Flory (2 years ago)

Yep! That is actually the next sewing video I plan to put up, hopefully this week if I have time. :)

If I could make them I would wear them,but I can't sew anything. I don't even own a sewing machine.
Rain Country (2 years ago)
And it is very hard to find modest skirts these day in the stores, one reason I decided to start making them myself!
