Laura loves to wear skirts and, to avoid the constant "panty-flash" that comes with that, I try my best to only purchase ones that have built in shorts underneath. Unfortunately most of those seem to be shorter skirts that on her height come off as way too short for my liking.
But, then I found this great pattern at one of my favorite websites. (If you love to sew clothes and projects this is a great site for you!) It is adorable. It looks like a layered skirt but really it's shorts underneath! I just bought t-shirts and embellished them to match.I've made three of these outfits in different fabrics. They are great!
Now Laura can look girly and still maintain a polite decency!
