An easy idea that has saved me a lot of money is making my little girl’s “bicycle shorts” myself.
And by make, I mean cut off an old pair of leggings.
Yup, those ever so popular girls knit leggings.
When my daughter gets a hole in a pair or grows out of them, I cut them off for her to use as shorts under her skirts.
The waist usually still fits perfectly, since they are so stretchy.
You don’t even have to do any sewing….the knit might roll a little, but who cares! It’s only to hide her undies when she decides to do flips in front of all the boys!
