My five-year-old is a dress girl. And that means everyday. I made her wear jeans today because #1 it was PE day and #2 because it was cold and wet and icky this morning. You would have thought that I put her in a torture chamber. Tears, tears, and more tears.
So, I think we are back to skirts and dresses. And since she wears them EVERYDAY I am in need of some shorts to wear under skirts. She will wear leggings (thank heavens) but I needed some shorts to wear with cute knee socks and leg warmers (cause we’re all about the 80’s here) until I can talk her into tights (they hurt you know…..just like jeans). So I had been searching everywhere for some shorts to wear under her dresses and skirts….BUT #1 I am cheap….and #2 it’s October. Two strikes.
Well, browsing at the dollar store I spied some boys knit boxer shorts. Aha!!! That was it. I added some knit that I had, cut and sewed it into ruffles on the bottoms and in the front (to sew up the seam) and they work perfectly.
