These are the ideal summer shorts for girls sizes 12M to 8T. You will be surprised at how easy it is to make them and your girl(s) will love the cuteness of the design. You can find this pattern at http://www.onthecuttingfloor.com/the-easy-shorts.
I used cotton fabric from scraps and elastic thread. I have also added some bias tape to the hemline to give a contrasting color to it.
