A Question of Chaffing
We had a really great question pop up on the SONP Flickr discussion board last week. Sew and Sew Much More asked:
Ok, so I’m just going to put this out there. Please forgive me as I’m not trying to be rude at all. I just need tips/advice on skirt wearing. I’m a bigger gal (14/16) so my thighs tend to rub while wearing a skirt. Biker shorts work to help this problem but I end up feeling hotter and less feminine in them. Baby powder works for awhile but not forever. Does anyone else experience this kind of skirt wearing issue? If so what do you recommend?
I can totally relate! I have a “pear” shaped body, and no matter what my weight is, my thighs touch each other. And when it gets hot, that can be uncomfortable. So after rolling the idea around for a bit, I thought about bloomers! I really wanted to do a tutorial for you guys involving cutting up cotton leggings and sewing on elastic lace, but I could not get it to come out at all. So I turned to the pros! Here are some pretty underthings from Etsy. Enjoy!
