This is the Girls Dance Shorts FREE sewing pattern from Sew Can She, an easy dance shorts sewing pattern that comes in sizes 2-12.
When the designer had her own two girls in dance classes, she noticed that it cost a lot of money to keep up with all the dance uniforms, costumes, tights, and shoes! She also noticed that as far as dance shorts are concerned they require only a tiny bit of fabric. So she decided to deconstruct a pair and make her own pattern. That pattern includes easy to follow instructions and photos describing and showing every step of the process.
The main part of these dance shorts can be made with any light to mid-weight knit fabric that has a two-way or four-way stretch. The waistband must be made with dance or swimsuit material that contains spandex. This will very much help keep the shorts on.
To make these shorts the designer tried out a thread that stretches just a tiny bit called Eloflex. You can read more about it in her blog.
The Girls Dance Shorts FREE sewing pattern comes in six sizes, as follows:-
What you will need to make a pair of Girls Dance Shorts:-
