Yes, it could be a variation on the term reversible. I have a mini with a buttoned, zipped rear split (which bursts open in an astonishing manner if bending too much).

That button closing should contain the zipper movement - but alas it is not all that sufficient.
The nylon hidden zipper has perhaps the best holding potential - the metal zippers aren't very
good at all. The best metal zipper is the type when reached the top of the zip the tang or
tag folds down onto the track with a small projection into the track - locking the movement -
as long as that remains flat and engaged the zip doesn't move - lift the tang and swoosh the
zip is off to the races.
Commonly with a button waist a cheap zipper is used - with no button then the better zip is.
Best overall having a small hook and eye at the top of the waist taking the pressure off of the
button placket and any zip.

Zips at the front and side offer the most resistance to unzipping unraveling.
At the back there is a great deal more pressure to close the waist - some find it easier to
rotate the skirt around to the front close and rotate back into place - this is especially
true with an elastic stretch waist - but whoa becoming unzipped.

What one has to go through to zip up back closing dresses skirts and even some fashion pants
all to have that clean neat flat front appearance !
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

You're more than likely right.
Being a musician, the song "Glow Worm" comes to mind :D
I really like the version sung by the Mills Brothers.

I haven't heard that song in a great while. I really enjoyed hearing it again.
Thanks Uncle AL... :hooray: :rock:

A dark camo (night time camo?) pleated skirt. I quite like the look but a bit too long for me. The waist measuremetn is OK for me although it must be a small 14 as I am normally a 10 (Aus/UK)

Thankfully this is far too big for me.
It probably would be more confusing if the white background panels were flesh coloured.

Still about $22040 too much for me.
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

Am I reading correctly, the price is UK £16,380 or so?
Is the live model someone in particular?
Apart from the price I do like it and would wear the look quite easily.

That's how I read it. Should get modeling service for a few months thrown in, I think.
