Wrapping dresses a-la breeches

Post by Elden » Thu May 08, 2014 9:19 am

I found this cool marginalia from ROA linked in the breechcloth wrapping blog comments. A girl (I believe, as opposed to woman) has her dress wrapped up like breeches by pulling the back bottom hem through the front of her belt to play blind man's bluff. I would guess it makes it easier to move around blindfolded without tripping over ones skirts?
