Caroline from Maika shares a tutorial at Imagine Gnats showing how to make a pair of toddler’s shorts out of a man’s button up shirt. The shirting fabric is a nice weight for spring and summer shorts. She uses the Kid Shorts pattern from MADE, but this will work with any basic kid’s shorts pattern. If there’s a front pocket on the shirt, you can repurpose it to a back pocket on the shorts. Go to Imagine Gnats to find her tutorial.
