      RichmondLori,
      Never thought of it like that...but, you are right! TY!

      it makes perfect sense to me, considering the large border of the skirts and the weight of the fabric. just thought about when did one use this tool? to change the outfit? to use the toilet? I think I am going to research this further, it totally fascinates me. Lori
