Fairly Easy. Very Cute

Overall, these shorts are easy to make. They don't take much time and can easily be completed in a day. The directions have a couple spots that are a bit confusing and all the ruffles are the most time consuming, but I'd say it's a great pattern.

Ah, I just love these ruffled shorts! They look a bit intimidating but the tutorial is really easy to follow.

Give Yourself Some Time

The Ruffles took me a little bit to get down, but the results are well worth it. I'm a beginner so I would think for a more experienced seamstress these shorts would be very easy to complete. These will work well with any outfit and I have gotten a lot of compliments on them when I'm out with my daughter.

This,was,a,little challenging because of all the ruffles, but once I figured out how,to deal with them it wasn't terribly hard.

Adorable frilly shorts for an adorable frilly little girl

My daughter saw this pattern and said that "she needed it" lol. I made her a pair of these this morning with a soft pink and white fabric and they are simple adorable. Very easy sew with a more than simple outcome. These pair great with most tops. I will be making more asap!

cute as a button

For the 2 and under sizes, I would suggest only 2 ruffles. The top riffle of 3 is very hard to handle and doesn't even show! But the instructions were wonderfully easy to follow!
