Couldn’t I put on some of them old things and dress up like a girl?…So we shortened up one of the calico gowns and I turned up my trouser-legs to my knees and got into it.

– Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 10. Huck and Jim decide that the best way to find information so that they two can avoid capture is to have Huck disguise himself as a girl and go into the nearby town.
