I had an old skirt from dress-ups and had never looked at as something to remake until now! I used the ruby shorts pattern, and obviously shortened it. I like this length, it makes it easier to run around and climb trees! Next time I use this pattern I will lengthen the inseam a bit—its a little tight. I skipped on the pockets because I was too scared, but I really like them better this way. Overall, I am very happy with my new shorts!
