In one post Ray made a reference to "barrel". This might be substituted for the awkward "skirt or dress" or "skirt/dress". The "barrel" would be the skirt or dress part of ones rig.

When I think of a barrel in the sense of clothing, I have to think of cartoons. When somebody was too poor to buy clothes or somebody stole his clothes, he would wear a barrel instead. To give it a naughty twist, the barrel would hit a heavy object and the staves were flying around.

What, may I humbly ask, is so wrong with the vocabulary we already have that we need to invent new and fanciful (if already extant for other meanings) words for?
