Get them in, get them learning and loving, and it time their dress will change. Nag them ovet their clothes and chances are they'll think 'Well if thats how Christians behave, I won't bother' and you'll lose them.

I don't know.  I have a problem with seeing it as "nagging."  You nag about something that isn't important.  Not dressing like a hooa in front of God isn't just important, but dressing modestly is a tenet of Catholicism.  It's not like we're talking about someone picking their nose or some little idiosyncrasy.  We're talking about well defined and established <i>laws</i> in the House of God.

I do, however, agree on the fundamental of teaching them and seeing them grow in virtue, and immodest dress being abandoned by necessity.

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.
