Jessa Duggar slammed for charging guests for a fashion advice workshop

Jessa Duggar wants to help you build a wardrobe that's fashionable and faithful -- for a cost.

The 24-year-old "Counting On" star is facing backlash after announcing that her upcoming lecture, "Fashionably Modest with Jessa," will come with a price tag. At $20 per person, it's a pretty nominal fee, but fans across the country have taken up arms.

"Being paid to talk about your modest lifestyle seems like an oxymoron," one fan wrote on The Duggar Family Blog. Added another, "It feels immodest to talk about how modest you are."

Outside of the cash complaint, fans voiced a variety of other concerns. Some even suggested that Jessa doesn't dress modestly enough to host such a discussion. "Modest women don't wear their long hair down in public," one commenter declared.

The event, which takes place June 24 in a small Ohio town, is open only to women. Guests will also be able to take a photo with Jessa during a meet-and-greet session.

Jessa, who married Ben Seewald in 2014, strictly adheres to conservative dress. Like the rest of her female family members, she typically only wears long skirts and loose dresses. However, her younger sister Jinger, 23, recently made headlines after being photographed in pants. Her husband, Jeremy Vuolo, gave an explanation at a recent Texas sermon.

"It is your liberty as to whether you dress modestly with a modest pair of pants, or with a skirt, or with a T-shirt, or with a blouse," Jeremy said. Even so, he quickly clarified, "It is not your liberty, women, to wear sensual, seductive clothing that is designed to draw the attention of your brothers."
