These cute free shorts patterns for kids would make fun additions to your kids’ summer wardrobes!
It seems like every year when you get ready for the summer, you think you have some clothes that will fit your child still from last year, but they almost always grow out of them or are about to by the time the season hits. If you are a beginning sewer or an advanced one, making shorts for your kids may be the most economical way to make a bunch for the summer since they use very little fabric and often, very little time. Plus you can control the length, style and size much easier and if you have ever had a kid with a tiny waist that never seems to fit in any pants made for their size, this is the ultimate solution! Here are 10 free shorts patterns for kids for your summer season.
