Pants - Repair question - Page 2

True. *reaches down and feels chair* I don't think the chair is overly abrasive. I will just buy new pants and be done with it. I highly suspect it is rubbing as I walk since I have very muscular legs.

My spelling isn't always the best.......SILESIA.....usually a poly/cotton material used mainly for pocketing, but also works a a crotch lining, sleeve interfacing, etc.

Thanks for the clarification. Even if you had spelled it right, I still wouldn't have known what it was. I don't remember whether we got an answer on this question before: does a lining that moves independently from the shell fabric with low friction (like Bemberg) prevent wear better than, say, silesia or fused interlining? I have these theories sometimes, I don't know where they come from, but I'd like to hear some tailors' opinions. Though I don't know if Bemberg would be the most comfortable for the crotch, vice silesia or fusing.

WHat is most comfortable depends on if you are going commando or not. Clients that go commando I use Bemberg lining, but it wears faster. I sew my crotch lining into the seams and use a blindstitch to secure it to the fabric.
