If your daughter is too active for dresses, make these Summer Kids' DIY Shorts to put under the dresses for her to be cool and comfortable in the summer sun. These DIY shorts are technically short leggings made out of cotton fabric and elastic. Like previously said, they are great for wearing under dresses and skirts as well as for sports and other activities. This sewing tutorial takes an existing pair of short leggings to make a new pair, so make sure to measure your child's size correctly while sewing this pattern.

Every kid needs a basic pair of shorts like this for the summer months. These look comfy enough to be great for summer camp and the playground.
