Lauren Dahl from Baste + Gather and Selvage Designs shares a free pattern for these little girl Summer Shorties. They’re just the thing for active little girls. They can be worn on their own as bike shorts, or layered under a dress to keep panties from showing. They sew up quickly and require only a 1/2 yard knit fabric plus some plush back elastic for the waist. You could sew up a stack of them in just one evening. Her free pattern comes in sizes ranging from 12 months – 8 years. Go to Baste + Gather to download her free pattern.
