How to Add Shorts to a Skirt

Hello everybody,

Here is Lesley alias Frullemieke from the blog https://frullemieke.blogspot.be again. Today I’m gonna show you how to make a pattern mash up from the Kids Sunshine leggings and the Kids Be Smart Jumper.


We are gonna add a short under the skirt, so that your daughter can play, climb and do gymnastics without showing off her underpants 😉

Ok, here we go:

1. Cut out the pattern pieces: short version of the Kids Sunshine Legging and the low waist skirt option and waistband from the Kids Be Smart Jumper.


  1. Cut out all the pattern pieces in fabric.


  2. Sew the short like in the tutorial and close the waistband.

    4. Pin the short in the skirt and sew this together with a 6 mm seam allowance.
  3. Sew the waistband on.

    6. And this is the result after finishing all the steps 😊.

Enjoy your new creation!
