(8/11/14 addendum: this doesn't work with all skirts... I'm sure the material makes a difference. Knit fabric or light fabric is the best. Many of my summer skirts hit just below the knee which is modest and cool for the summer weather. But when you put a penny and rubber band in the mix it hikes that skirt to 3 or 4 inches above the knee... just a word to the wise. So for that length skirt I will go back to my garter style elastic to hold my skirt in place.)
I bike to and from work most days and I love skirts and wear them almost every day. I have an elastic band that I slide up garter style to slip over one edge of my skirt to keep it from flying up and exposing a bit too much...but Eva at Opulent Poppy just shared a GREAT idea!
You place the penny on the back side of your skirt and rubber band around the penny on the front side turning your skirt into pants (well almost). This is perfect!
Thanks again Eva for sharing this great idea.
