How does a lady exit a vehicle while wearing a dress?

 
 

Dear Polite One, 

What is the lady-like way to exit a vehicle while wearing a dress? 

Thanking you,

Dear Visitor, 

Enter the vehicle by turning your back to the seat, both feet outside of the vehicle, and sit. Swing both legs into the vehicle at once.  Stepping out of the vehicle is just the reverse. Shift your weight onto your outside hip and turn towards the open door swinging both legs out of the vehicle at once. Then stand. 

Sincerely, 

The Polite One
