Lucky you to find clothing in Just Your Size !
FYI - - -
The Faded Glory is trade name for denim clothing under Wal*Mart's label.
The difference in prices during sales is not that much different between
Wal*Mart and GW.
Goodwill used to have rock bottom prices but that is not longer the case.
Take a look at Wal*Mart's clothing and watch for roll back sales especially
at or near the season end !
Right. I should have tucked the shirt. It has a button waist with a zipper as well as belt loops and came with a canvas belt.
As far as Walmart goes, I refuse to shop there or any of the "superstores".

I bought a knee length camo skirt and a mini skirt. The knee length skirt is very sturdy and has pockets almost everywhere. Beside those, I made a kilt in camo and from the left over fabric I made two mini skirts. They are ideal for my hikes.

I think I like your home-made kilt and skirt better than the purchased one! The GI web belt is an excellent touch and darn practical.

I wore the G.Lieberman camouflage tights at a breakfast place on Sunday. (With blue denim shorts, athletic socks and sneakers.)
A waitress said, looking at my legs, "Is that tattoos?" I replied, "No, ma'am, just a camouflage garment."
I do not wear camouflage tights with my camouflage skirt. That would be overkill. Plus, the colors do not match.
The Lieberman tights are lighter weight than I was expecting, still they look good and fit perfectly. (Size large, 6'2" tall.)
I like my Cabela's bayou skirt, wear it often, and I am looking for more camouflage skirts.

As one who is always looking for a good camouflage skirt, I came
across this in an unlikely place.
http://www.modestapparelusa.com/camoufl ... -2154.html
It has pockets and belt loops. It looks as if it has a front zip, but I can't
tell for sure. It appears to be a few inches too long for most of my purposes.
This one of those suppliers of modest "Christian" garments and while much of
their merchandise you might call "dowdy" or "frumpy," some of their skirts
might appeal to whoever is looking for practical and durable, and in generous sizes.
It is interesting to browse your search engine for what is being offered as
"Amish and Mennonite clothing" and "modest Christian clothing." There is
a lot of it out there. Most of in colors like black, grey and navy, but at least
it all looks very well made.

You can choose 27" rather than 30".

I have 2 of the camo skirts that are 36'' long that I wear in the colder months. They are good skirt and you can get cargo pockets on them but the belt loop are a little tight for a 1and half inch belt

Another positive is that it is not really a military camouflage.
It is a woodland print, like an oak forest. Nature Boy likes that.
At first glance the skirt looks like standard issue camouflage,
and it would probably serve that purpose.

Where were you Richard? I couldn't see you - it must have been the camouflage gear as you blended into the background.

Seriously, the top and skirt are a really good match and the skirt is a length that I like as well. Well done.

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.

I wear denim, khaki, and camo skirts, all just above the knees. Some have elastic waist, some have belt loops. Most have pockets, which I appreciate because I need a place to keep my keys. They resemble shorts and no one has ever noticed they are skirts. I always have a tee shirt on my driver's seat. When going to a restaurant I roll up and bring the tee shirt with me and place it over my knees much like a napkin. Nothing is revealed and doesn't draw attention. When I am wearing a skirt I wear black underwear as it wouldn't be as obvious if I accidentally exposed myself. I don't cross my legs as it would not be comfortable. I carry a back pack or a military looking shoulder bag.

I wear skirts for hiking in national forests, state and national parks, nature preserves, and wilderness areas. I am out at least once a week for nature and wildlife photography.
