My tap pants tutorial, How-To: Make a Custom Pair of Tap Pants, is now up on CRAFT!

How-To: Make a Custom Pair of Tap Pants

For me, summer in NYC means two things: 1) I will eventually wear a light skirt into the subway when my hands are full, and 2) on that day, when I step onto the stairs of the station, a gust of wind will come barreling up from below, lifting my skirt and showing my backside to anyone who cares to look. This year, on the very first nice day, my skirt flew up not once, but twice. In the same commute. Grumbling and scrambling to pull it down, it hit me: I definitely needed a pair of tap pants.

In case you’re not familiar, tap pants work like a slip, but they’re actually shorts, making them the perfect solution to my summer skirt woes. I’m pretty sure that every gal with a skirt and the chance of a breeze needs a pair!

Among other things, this means that my BFF Melanie’s legs are on the internet, lookin’ all hot. (That’s what happens when your closest ladyfriend is almost six feet tall and has legs up to her chin!) Sorry to disappoint: I included my real measurements, so I didn’t think that I needed to show an up-close-and-personal shot of my cat-sticks as well!

Head on over to CRAFT for the full tutorial. (Or, you know, to check out Melanie’s legs.)

    Oooh!  I live on the coast and have the same issue!  Except I have baby in hand, so my goods always go exposed … unless I drop baby?  ;)  This is so lovely. Thanks!
