Pattern Description:

Here's a problem-solving free sewing PDF tutorial for all the moms out there who have active little girls. Little girls with lots of priorities, and modesty isn't necessarily high on that list.

Make a handmade skirt modest-friendly by sewing in a store-bought pair of leggings. This is a perfect project for a little girl, but you can make it in any size.

My six year old girl has a ton of leggings. They're just so inexpensive, widely-available, and are great under skirts and dresses. My girl also has a ton of skirts that I've made for her. I can't help it, there are just so many cute skirt patterns and tutorials out there!

She is a very active girl, and loves to ride her bicycle. She likes to pick out her clothes to wear each day, and doesn't necessarily match her clothes with her daily activity.

So I paired up some of her leggings with some handmade skirts. It's a win all-around: she can be as active as she wants, independently pick out her daily clothes, and my mind is at ease that her modesty is in check.

So get the free How to Sew Modesty Shorts Into a Skirt PDF, grab some leggings, choose your favorite skirt sewing pattern, and have fun!

The PDF is a 6-page document with photos and simple instructions. Hope you enjoy it!
