Absolutely love this pattern! Looks so Devine on my little miss, I would've givin a 5 star, but it was abit of a pain measuring out the pieces that don't come to print, other than that I adore this shorts!

Favorite Shorts!

I love to make these with ric rac instead of the ruffle (I love the look of the ruffle, but the ric rac makes it faster). It's a great pattern because of that versatility. I made these for my daughter's first birthday outfit and a few holiday pairs! Must buy.

Quick sew!

These shorts are adorable and they fit my daughters (3 and 8) perfectly! The instructions are clear and easy to follow. They go well with so many CKC tops and I love the ruffles!

Cute shorts!

Great easy to follow pattern for make super cute shorts! I love having lots of great options to use for these like pom trim, lace, or bias tape to finish the edges instead of just ruffles. My kids love these too!

Pretty but short

I love the look of this pattern, especially when overlapped the other way (back on top) but I've had to add length to them plus some to the rise in the back to cover my daughters bottoms and get the length to what we feel is appropriate for our comfort zone

Girlie Shorts!

This pattern was awesome because it didnt require a lot of fabric and was quick. I made it using a trim rather than ruffling fabric so it made it even quicker. I love how you can make it to go with most CKC patterns and store bought tees.
