Surayya from Blissful Sewing shows how to make a pair of Bermuda shorts for a child. The knee-length shorts have large patch pockets on the front. The ones she made are for her 12-year-old son, and she gives the fabric requirements for making them in that size, but this would work for any age child. It would also be a cute style for girls to wear. Go to Blissful Sewing for the tutorial.
