Not sheepish, but individ-ewe-al

I'm also trying to dress a bit more revealingly around my friend who objects to modesty rules.
For example, I generally feel more comfortable in calf-length or longer skirts, so knee-length skirts are in principle fine but I'm not used to them.
Just popping by to say, I don't think you dress outside the window of plausible British clothing levels at all; your description of coverage is the same as me at work (I wear T-shirts outside work with sleeves ~10cm shorter than your typical, but everything else still the same). You have two reasons for dressing as you do, only one of which is related to religious reasons. The other is that's what you're comfortable in and used to, and that is a perfectly good reason on its own to dress the way you dress. I don't think you should feel under any obligation at all to dress differently around your friend - they probably wouldn't even have had a rant at you if they thought they were ranting about you...
