Bloomers! I love bloomers. I wear bloomers with my "IRL" (in real life) skirts when I can. My thighs are the kind of thighs that rub together (sadly) and having the ability to wear pants under a skirt is a boon. Additionally, with how much I move around at events and the like, I sometimes have to hike-up my skirts. Bloomers keep me from showing off too much leg.

|What is a pair of bloomers without some fluffy lace?|

A tip on adding lace to a ruffle. Don't put the edge of the lace on the outside of your ruffle-hem. Put it on the inside, and try to keep your "stitching-on-the-lace" seam in line with your hem stitching. It just makes it look cleaner.
