Hi Carla, I call a sleeveless pullover dress a jumper.  Sometimes there are buttons at the shoulders like overalls.  Sometimes they have a shaped waist, sometimes they just hang.  Basically they give modest coverage for bending while wearing stretchy leggings and shirts.

Am I the only one who likes a jumper over a thin cotton shirt with or without leggings?  I feel like I can do anything when covered like that.  So easy to bend and reach, and not too much heavy restrictive fabric at the crotch and waist.  I do have light over garments I keep at the backdoor: polyblend wind pants and zippered hooded jacket that are good at keeping dirt from my getting ground into my inner garments.  I buy the leggings where I can, the thin shirts anywhere, the jumpers and wind garments at consignment stores.  Now that I don’t go to work, I can wear what suits me instead of ugly « normal » polyester outfits.  That makes me So happy!

Thanks for picking a winner for me to try.  I ordered a green one.  I sometimes would pee behind a tree when it’s too far or too much trouble to take off dirty boots and such to go in the house.  I don’t want to be dragging dirt and leaves and shedding twigs from my hair all over the house.  I was doing the pants-down and low squat with no trouble, but I do miss TP to dry up. At one point I kept an empty Folgers can with TP stored inside, out in the woods.  The other thing I wanted to mention is that a large empty yogurt container works well for collecting pee.  You can squeeze in the sides so it makes an oval shape, then press it up around the area and all the pee goes in.  (You still need to drop your trou though).  When I had free-roaming hens, I would put the pee in a squirt bottle then spray in spots all around the perimeter to mark the yard.  I’d squirt pee on trees a little higher up than a dog, to try to show that a Big dog lived here.  Who knows what the animals thought, but it might have deterred the fox, deer, and maybe coyotes.  It will be weird to try a standing pee.

I’ve also tried vinegar, baking soda, sunshine, multiple washings without success.  I agree that it probably is Febreeze spritzed on all the clothes at the Salvation Army because they all have that same strong perfumey smell.  I’m always afraid that someone will notice it, or the pinhole rip in the back of the neck where the staple was holding on the price tag.  I don’t have the answer, but I’m glad you asked the question.
