How did women get anything done outside in a long skirt?
I've tried several times to switch to only wearing skirts, not necessarily from a biblical perspective, though I still prefer longer skirts...I don't know if I'm just doing it wrong, or if it's just the inconvenience that comes with it.

Did women just lean over to weed gardens and collect eggs and stuff? I'm constantly tripping over my skirt when I try to squat down or sit on my knees...Then the hem gets snagged on pricker bushes. It becomes irritating.

I admire women from back then, that's for sure. But then, they couldn't just say screw it, and throw on shorts.

I've actually been trying to find colonial style skirts, but it hasn't worked out. I bought a bustle skirt online (not a huge bustle), but I didn't realize it was costume material. I'm not a fan of maxi skirts, so I'm not really sure what else to try.

Try shifts like these

The wife and the master gardener dress like this in their little berkenstocks.

There is a German saying "there is no bad weather just bad clothes."

Wear mc hammer pants. They are both modest and functional.

I prefer skirts. I have a lot of boho, long broomstick skirts. Throw it on with a cute tank top for summer, and underwear are optional.

I don’t do yard work in them though, too many ticks in east Texas.

I completely empathize with what you are trying to do because I have tried it myself...I think we need to look at the quality of the cotton and the weave of the long skirts. I really think that makes all of the difference in keeping the upper close to your thighs while the lower stays close to your ankles...i sooooo wish i could get my hands on some patterns from that age...

It was fear of their husbands beating that motivated them to overcome, thank fuck we live in more enlightened times and the tyrannical rule of the theists is almost at an end!

Yes, I wish I could find patterns too. I'm at a point where I'm willing to sew my own if I have to. In the meantime, I discovered I like upcycling clothes, so I've been making long skirts out of old jeans, but instead of using Jean leg pieces for the panels, I use flannel or old t-shirts, or other fabric I have. That way they don't look so...cultish. lol
