I found out by accident that my girls had a strong preference for smooth fabric for the shorts they wore under their dresses to play in. I used some athletic fabric scraps when trying out a swim bottoms pattern, and these pairs quickly became their favorite beneath all their dresses! Dresses glide right over the smooth fabric, and because it's athletic fabric, it stands up to all sorts of play!
Now we're offering you a kit with just what you need to make your girl some of the best kind of playground shorts! This kit includes a fat quarter of athletic fabric in your choice of print or Aegean blue, 1 and a half yards of Midnight Fancy Foldover Elastic and a 9" square of cotton jersey for the crotch.
