I have noticed that some people remove their Yarmulka last when undressing and wear it first when dressing.

Is this custom mentioned anywhere?

It seems to me that there is a more general custom of dressing from top down and undressing from bottom up. I have been looking for a source but haven't found one yet. –  Binyomin Trager Dec 28 '12 at 20:43

@BinyominTrager compare Mishna B'rura 2:7 ("ואם סך כל גופו ראש תחלה מפני שהוא מלך על כל האיברים"). –  msh210 Dec 30 '12 at 5:28

Shaalos U'Tshuvos Minchas Yitzchak 4:60, Ben Ish Chai Parshas Vayishlach 1:17, Halichos Shlomo 13:26, mention putting on the Yarmulke first when finishing to bathe. Halichos Shlomo also mentions leaving on the Yarmulke until all the clothing is removed.

צרוך ללבוש הכיפה בראשונה מיד כשבא למקומו לפני כל מלבישיו ולסלקו מראשו לאחר גמר פשיטת כל מלבושיו
