I remember when these went around the fashion cycle in the 70's...Erma Bombeck reportedly did an hysterical piece on trying to put them on. I've got the pattern in the stash...loungewear, someday... ;)

When you sit down or walk in the wind, do your legs show? If so, how far up do they show? I have been wanting to make these for years.

Fantastic! What a great choice for your travels! The cheesecloth works so well for these!

I've made this pattern too, no real fitting required and very comfortable to wear. They look good in cheese cloth.
