My mother has a nice summer skirt. Still she didn’t wear it often, because she has no trust in it. What if you’re afraid that the skirt sticks to you legs when standing up after being seated for a while? Even while wearing an underskirt of lining fabric, she thinks the fabric needs weight. Here’s Style hack for garments made of lightweight fabric
Can you see how it blows in the wind?
“Bea, what can we do?”
I thought of a solution I had some years ago, for a tunic made of synthetic fabric. It sticked to my body, because of static electricity while wearing it.

Let the same trick be useful today! I’m sure it will work well.
I used Button-sew-on-foot nr 18.

8 buttons were stitched along the seam of the skirt.
The skirt will be worn with much more confidence!
