Hmm, I can't help recalling something.  I went skiing in Pennsylvania last 
year and saw a church group there with about 6 teen age girls dressed in 
this way.  What I am recalling is how very difficult it is to get up again 
after falling while wearing a voluminous long skirt and skis....  I was 
confused because usually one sees Mennonites in Pennsylvania (but they dress 
differently than this group) and I couldn't figure out what sect the church 
group might be.  Perhaps they were Brethren.   But then, I was friends in 
college with a Brethren woman and she didn't follow the above dress code at 
all.  Perhaps it was a wholly different group also called Brethren?  Back 
into the mists of confusion....
