Susan from Living With Punks shares a free pattern for making girl’s cabana shorts. They come to the knees and fit loose through the legs. A ruffle around the bottom is a cute detail. The pattern is for a size 5T, but you could trace around a pair of pants that fit your child to get a pattern in other sizes. Get the pattern and tutorial on her blog.
