I love these skirts.  They are so neat!  I have several of them and practically live in them especially in the summer.  I made some cotton bloomers to put under mine so I don't get a rash from my thighs rubbing together.

Good idea. The kind of underwear I wear are like biker shorts, so I don't have that problem.

Do you make your biker shorts?  If so, where did you get your pattern?  I find that the stretchy synthetic ones are too darn hot for our Missouri weather.  I sweat like crazy when I wear them.  I'm in the hot flash phase of my life right now so I don't do heat so well.  Three or four years ago I couldn't stay warm in the winter; now I'm fine without adding all the layers I used to have to add.  I'll be glad when this menopause thing is over.  I vowed to do it medication-free and most days I'm fine.  Unless it's hot.  Or bright.  Or unless someone I love is being stupid.  LOL

I buy mine through my church. they're part of the covenant clothing that we wear after attending the temple. I'm LDS. But, my aunt who isn't practicing LDS makes hers from cotton jersey material from her own pattern. You could probably take a knickers pattern and then make the legs tighter and longer.

Oh, okay.  Thanks.  I have some LDS friends so I know about the garments.  I actually have a pattern I downloaded for bike short-type underwear but I've never made them.  My biggest concern is about if they don't fit snugly enough and I end up with a rash in a very sensitive spot.  I guess I can try with some cheap knit fabric and see how they turn out. 

Here's the link for the pattern - it's called Non-binding Comfort Fit Panties

It sure would save a lot of sewing if I only had to make one thing instead of two. 

Thanks again  Cheesy

The one on the left looks good. Since there's a bit of stretch to the jersey, you should be able to make them tight enough. My aunt used a jersey sheet and made several pairs. I've seen the jersey sheets go on clearance at Target when it's the end of back to college season. You might want to check there for some cheap fabric.
