making the shirts is a brilliant idea, mariano! as a woman, i'm also very
aware (maybe too aware) of whether or not the end of my unform shirt
(blouse) hangs out of my skirt. in my opinion that looks sloppy. i'd like
to see the national office in the u.s. offer a shirt that is styled in one
piece like a ballet leotard. i've spoken to other female scouters who feel
the same way. anyone else have any ideas?
how does a scouter go about proposing an idea like this to u.s. national
anyway? i'd really like to know.
