Mira from Sewing The Littleheart Collection shares a free pattern for making a pair of little girl’s ruffle leg shorts. The design is inspired by a pair of little girl shorts from GAP. They’re a pair of basic pull-on knit shorts, but with pockets (because every kid needs pockets!) and a pretty ruffle around the legs. The pattern is for a size 3T/4T. If you need a different size, you could use a basic shorts pattern and add the ruffle. Go to her blog for the pattern and how-to.
