Yep. I'm long-legged and thick-waisted. There isn't a pair of pants out there that fits me right, or doesn't chafe me in places where I don't care to be chafed. Dresses aren't a style statement to me, they're a necessity. In lieu of pants for hard labor, I just pull on an old suit of oversized coveralls, roll up the sleeves and legs, and that suffices for going up ladders in public or crawling around in muck. Otherwise, there's nothing I could do in pants that I can't do just as well in a dress.
