Truly a classic when it comes to girls shorts. But the best part is that you can make these with your choice of fabric and for a fortune less than you can find in any store.
Our tutorial allows you to modify and enhance your Fold and Flap Shorts. You can choose to have a ruffled waistband, as seen in the top picture. Or you may choose to have a "normal" non-ruffled waistband, as seen in the second picture below.
