The Hadley Ruffle Pedal Short is the perfect companion with any of our summer swing tops! With all around elastic waist, she can just pull these on and go! 1” elastic allowed at waist for a comfy fit. Ruffles finish 1” wide along the bottom hem. Length hits just above knee. These shorts are made with a straighter fitting style, but not tight fitting like a bike short. Chose non-stretch knits such as jersey or stretch fabrics work as well. Girl’s sizes 2-8 are included in this pattern.
Recommended Fabrics: Please note this pattern is for knit fabrics only. At Patsy Aiken Designs, our knit fabrics of choice were always 100% cotton. However, blends will work also. Medium weight is recommended so that the style maintains its shape and has a nice drape. Interlocks, jersey, both printed and yarn-dyed stripes, with or without stretch, work well with this pattern. Additional yardage may be required to match stripes, or with print fabrics that have a one-way pattern. Prewash and dry fabrics before cutting.
