These shorts were originally designed to go under little girls' skirts and dresses for added modesty on the playground when climbing jungle gyms and doing cartwheels, but found them to be a super versatile garment for playtime, dancewear and more! You could even make them a size or two bigger than suggested by the size chart (while still using the correct length of elastic) to create a more relaxed-fit pair of shorts.
What you'll need:
- 1/2 yard of stretchy knit fabric
- 3/4″ plush-back elastic OR 1″ fold-over elastic
- Sewing machine, thread, scissors, pins, iron, etc
