] I just re-read what you said and I think you mis-understood me. I was saying that "crossed legs" was considered unlady-like, not un-crossed legs.
Well, with long dresses(full attire) legs are never crossed because this draws attention to the contours of the body(lower half). This applies to any cultural area where women are fully attired.
The erect position/with hands on the knees OR engaged in any hand work, was acceptable.
