new skirts ordered

Postby Bikerkilt » Thu Sep 13, 2018 2:12 am

Over the winter and early spring I wear camo long skirts with more skirts under them anyway I ripped both of them and cut down to 22 long that is below the knee. Today I call Modest Apparel and talk to the owner about making the skirt hem to fit my stride she said that she would so I ordered 2 skirts with 14 waist 36in long with cargo pockets. You should checkout what they have in modest skirts at modestapparelusa.com you may like what you find. Oh I also ordered a Camo Print Prairie skirt 34in length.

A 14" waist, BK ? Even diminutive Scarlet O'Hara in 'Gone with the Wind' originally had an 18" waist as a teenager.

Perhaps you mean 14X2 = 28 inch ?

For a moment I thought he was competing with "Twiggy" - nothing but bones wrapped in skin !

For awhile back there was the Rule of 20
Take the Misses sizing and add 20 to the number to get the waist equivalent

I.E. - Misses size 12 =s a 32 inch waist

Or you could reverse this for your 32 inch waist you would be looking for a Misses size 12

Back to this 14 inch waist - me thinks one is looking for a broomstick in closet LOL !
"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 !

@Bikerkilt, I called attention to the ModestApparel.com camouflage
skirt over a year ago. I am pleased to see they are comfortable working
with male customers, and will tailor almost anything to order. It looks
like a well-made and serviceable skirt. (I don't own one. I am very
satisfied with my camouflage Bayou skirts from Cabela's.)
Almost anything labeled as "conservative Christian clothing" will be
durable and well-made, even if it doesn't fit everybody's idea of
high fashion. They do a lot of school uniforms, etc.
Amish and Mennonite clothing will be of similar high quality, but they
only do basic colors -- black, grey, navy.

Maybe he meant size 14? Which translates roughly to about 36-38 inches?

Better be clear on that order bikerkilt.... you're liable to wind up with one of those skirts that only fits Asians! :lol:

Yes moonshadow it is size 14 which comes out to 34 waist. Bertion34 I have bought skirts off of Modest Apparel the last 3 or 4 years and I have a camo bayou skirt that I wore this past Labor Day. r.m.amderson and tom I hope this clear up that mystery.

So the Rule of 20 still works - Size 14 fits a waist of 34 inches.
